    They don't ever get to 8'', even seven would be an uncommonly large female. They are 6'' range spiders for the most part, granted..they do have a stout build. MMs are much smaller.
    Your mistaking correction for hostility.

    See I live in the tropics and from what I’ve read Theraphosas thrive in high humidity but cooler environments. I mean I could keep it if I wanted too but I’m not looking for something that’s gonna be a high maintenance for me.

    1. they do not, they are a 6" t.

    2. How on gods green earth did you discern my post as hostile? o_O LMAO

    Overestimated size then...they do not get that big....maybe one freak did, but they are not generally even close to that size. 5-6" is much more typical.

    Iridopelma. Unusual. Desirable. Colorful. And have a attitude without bad venom.

    They don't get enough credit. IMG_20181011_160855638.jpg
    I hirsutum. Bad picture. And it doesn't show her bright red abdomen very well.

    @bathsheba You disliked me describing a tarantula I saw first hand at a show? E-mail Anastasia and ask her yourself if you don't believe me.

    There is no way would I dislike your description of a T. Maybe my fat fingers hit something while I was browsing on mobile. Sorry about that :eek:

    No worries then. Sorry about the delayed response...I haven't had internet since 10/23. Moving can really suck.
