Am I a Nhandu coloratovillosus?

I got this beauty last night, when I went to pick up baby pokies (P formosa) from Tony Ho. No hooks, but looks male ventrally (I think). About 4 1/2" DLS, I'd say. Didn't get a good enough ventral shot to tell anything, and not going to pick him up for the sake of trying to figure that out. He is exploring his new home, has already eaten lunch (BAM!) and has groomed himself afterwards.

I've looked up the various "black and white" Ts here and on google, and he looks just like N coloratovillosus to me.

Opinions? Thanks!

Thanks...according to my coworkers I am some kind of freak, so possibly not human. I'm now being called the Spider Queen by many of my friends...LOL!

100% positive too. They are very lovely but my breeder groups are somewhat aggressive/defensive towards me. I dont advise you to handle it... Enjoy that T!!!

Hi - I agree. He already threw a threat pose just getting him out of the cup. He'll be a look-pretty, not a handle-T.

He is REALLY nice looking, though!

I have three females waiting for him when he is ready! Hopefully I get 2 sacs from them soon.

Nice T. One that I don't have, but would love to add to my NW collection. Why aren't these anywhere near as common as N Chromatus?

In researching the photos and here on the boards, I found fewer references myself. One care sheet also said it was "rare". I can appreciate the beauty of them... I'd love to see more.

If it is a male, he may have to go off for breeding when he's ready.
