What do you guys think?

I do not know anything about this but looks kind of like male to me.

This is a nice male. You must find him a girl! :}
He is going right back to the pet shop since my wife bought him as a female for me for new years.

Unless someone has a female in Switzerland or south Germany.

Looks like a Nhandu to me, perhaps the pet store should give you money back for a miss ID, instead of the sex haha:)

Later, Tom

Many tarantulas look alike at first glance, but the long hairs on the carapace of your spider indicate Nhandu rather than Acanthoscurria. Nhandu carapoensis would be my guess.

Regardless, I still think its a female, so enjoy.

From what I have been able to find about them, Nhandu carapoensis seems a bit pricier than the other species so maybe my wife just got lucky ;).
