    He has been claimed by a fellow hobbyist for a breeding loan, mere minutes after I posted this pic, but thank you for the offer!

  9. the more i see these pictures, the more tantalized i am by this genus and it is quickly becoming a favorite. but, i must ask, is there a way to distinguish some of these "lookalike" species from each other? cupreus, latipes, plumipes, sanctivincenti, subcaeruleus, and violaceus all look like metallic shiny bald abdomen-ed purple spiders, atleast in pictures...Are there any obvious/distinct features each species has in order to identify them and figure out what's what?

  13. One of my first T's. I know they are not considered a beginner sp. but I am hopeful that I did enough research and extremely respectful of my T's. Any way .75 in sling. "Peachie".

  18. Thanks Repugnant, this species is one of my favorite T's that I've owned. The behaviour/temperament is similar within this genus. ;) Also, I find both T. gigas and T. sp Colombia to be out in the open enough to appreciate them. :)
