O. philippinus
This is seriously one of my fav. OW's burrowers... it's a shame that this specie, even here in Europe, isn't sometimes considerated enough. I mean, look at that orange... people keeps talking about the orange of the 'OBT' but check this out.

Really, really underrated.
 
@PetrZ I know that in Europe is well available and cheap, man. My point was that I'm under the impression that this spider isn't respected the way deserved :)
 
I think one of the reasons is that this T is small. If someone wants nice big orange T, he will choose OBT, because it is up to 5", O. philippinus is about 2.5" :-( He is nice, but small... :-(
 
@kevinlowl I'm not 100% sure about the exact adult size (plus I'm a bit crappy with inches etc) but from what I know, they are kinda on the little side, I say 3 max 3.5 inches.
