Wild T Northeastern Brazil

These appear a lot at my uni, in Northeastern Brazil, I usually just pick them up with a small plastic bucket and let them go at the forest, a particularly small one ppeared and I decided to try to keep it, this particular one in the photo was 5~6" I believe.

      I didn't know LPs where so red. Also you lucked out with it being nice. Usually LPs are mean, and wild caught specimens of any animal are usually meaner

      @Cas S That's weird... So far all but one of them that I catched and released in the woods or poked back to behind the wall acted not unfriendly (meaning they never flicked hairs, and only one tried to strike at the poking stick)

      @Ryanxgx95 Honestly I have no idea on which Lasiodora it is, I mean, I think it's a LP but I'll wait till a professor says something in my uni

      What is the location? There's many different species of Lasiodora all along the North coast. You need at least one of these males preserved and examined for key characteristics under a microscope, and even then it is difficult as most in the genus is badly described. If you can legally collect and preserve to study, then after that is done you could try contacting Rogerio Bertani at Instituto Butantan for advice on the species identification. If it was Fortaleza then that's too far north for L.parahybana range, plus various aspects look wrong for that species.
