      Really like the colors of your one. I've been looking to get a good photo of mine, but she's in premolt, staying in her hide.

      I usually don't comment on photos, but I had to pop in and say that you have a beautiful A. chalcodes. Definitely one of my favorite species - I've been looking for a light blonde one for awhile!

      Her colors are quite stunning. An overlooked beauty for sure, but slowly catching the attention of the European market. My first glance I noticed her abdomen is so light colored compared to most blondes that I've seen.

      Once a light enough colored male is found she will be bred and large portion of her young from every sack will repopulate the Tucson area of Arizona.

      If I can 100% confirm their existence in southern Colorado I will be running a similar project in the pueblo area.

      As of now I can only confirm the natural existence of Aphonopelma hentzi and will regardless be releasing young of this breed from well color distinctive pairs as time passes.

      Gorgeous tarantula and I applaud your efforts to sustain the wild populations -- hopefully they are not undone bu the continual intrusion of human "development."

      If not every sling goes to this purpose, I would be interested in purchasing one when that day comes. She is a really beautiful tarantula. :)

      @ErinM31 If all goes well I will send you a sling at shipping cost.

      I'm hoping on the lottery as well she is wild caught so she may just produce a sack before my first tracked molt.
