    I just bought an Euathlus sp red. The seller says she's an adult female, she's about 3 cm (= 1,5 inch). How big does this species get? I know the other Euathlus species get bigger, but I couldn't find anything about the sp. red.
    How big would she have to be to for breeding? (I know is 60% of the adult size, but as I don't know that, I woul;d like to know.

    They are a dwarf species, if I am not mistaken they will top out somewhere around 3.5 inches.

    the seller is claiming it to be an adult @ that size?? like above 3" plus is a good avg..though some females i have seen get 4"s....

    i've seen several different animals being sold as sp. red.

    one looks like an RCF rose hair and gets to 3-4 inches.

    the one i received looks like a dark tarantula with a red patch at the base of the abdomen, just behind the carapace. she's about 2" (maybe a hair under), and will probably get no bigger than 3." her MM boyfriend is an even 2"

    Sounds a tad bit small but it is possible.
  6. Mine looks exactely like that. Do you measure the total length or the body length? Mine has a 1,5 inch body length, total would be around 3 inches.
