Aphonopelma saguaro sling

Aphonopelma saguaro sling

I picked up this Aphonopelma saguaro sling from Jurassic Pet Supplies a few weeks back at the Reptile Super Show in Pomona. I love the Aphonopelma genus and dwarf Ts, so this was an interesting find. I’d never heard of it before.

I only see a few tags on iNaturalist. Anyone know about these?
I've never heard of this species of Aphonopelma either. They turn into a gun metal color when adults, and are sexually dimorphic.
@Androxian I'm excited to raise it! I suspect it was 2i when I got it, and it hasn't molted yet. I don't believe it's eating yet, either, but it's feisty and active, so I'm not too worried. It is, however, the smallest tarantula sling I have ever bought, and is incredibly hard to find in its deli cup. I put a tiny plastic flower rosette in there and it disappears into the petals.

I'll just have to be patient for it to grow, because Aphonopelma.
