Expo find
This was listed as a curly hair for 10 dollars at an expo today i know it is most definetly not. i was guessing h mac as it looks similar to the 6 i have just slight differences make me wonder. Any help as far as i.d would be appreciated
I even tried to tell the guy it was definetly mislabled he said he doesnt deal in tarantulas often but he knows enough to know the hairs made it a curly hair.
 
Selling one of the most venomous tarantulas in the world as a curlyhair.... This is like selling a grown adult male lion as a domestic housecat
 
H. maculata, not very expensive to buy and are decent to keep IME.

@spodermin Not a B. albo, but a better pic with better lighting can help ID that one.
 
@Liquifin it's a phormictopus sp. green. I bought both luckily, and only realized upon inspecting the spiders that the lid had been switched at some point.
