    My female A. Bicoloratum. I rarely take her out because she runs so fast. She has molted once in the last year so I am not sure if she is matured or not.



    butt shot...

    They are a slow grower and are only good for 4 to 5 inches at maturity. I dont think they do come any bigger than yours so at a guess she is mature. She is bigger than my specimen. Males at full maturity loose the gold colouration and turn pure black in colour. I have read that they are not often bred in captivity. They are sought after and sell for big money.

    She is a beauty. Good luck with her.

    What a beautiful T. Handling seems not to be a problem.

    Thanks! She is my only aphonopelma among many brachys and gramm. I really love her since her colors don't fade much!

    Oh that means its another challenge to breed her... Well currently I am trying to breed by G. Pulchra. I guess I always try the challenging ones, huh...

    She doesn't brush off hair and never have I seen her do a threat pose. I just try to be careful not to startle her since she runs very very fast.
