Brachypelma boehmei Juvenile 2.5"+ Suspect Female

Taken right outside the Big Brand Pet Store in the enclosure they gave me for buying them ('ve already fixed it since then, don't worry!). I know supporting the big brands isn't the best, but I just feel too bad for these guys. At least this store did better at housing them than most places...
Looks more like a boehmei to me
That's what I was thinking, too, I thought I was going mad. I saw something else online that called a bohemei a hamorii instead, which didn't help my confusion. I'll switch this up to show the real name. Not the first place I've seen do this.
 
I don't think I've ever seen a B. boehmei at a big name pet store before! I've definitely fallen into the trap of feeling bad and taking a T. home also (being terribly kept and obv stressed) only to see they just replaced it with another a week later 😓 hate that it's a losing battle. Nice looking little one you have now though!

This store specifically has three of them (well...now two), and at least keeps them better than most big stores (not good, but definitely better than how another store about 5 minutes away from this one kept a T. albopilosus I bought). Suckered me in hard this time since I've wanted more Brachys. Another one about an hour away sells Megaphobema robustum. The care guides they had were 80% accurate, as well. I wish there was some way to get all big stores to up the standards of their care.
