Had got a sling Aphonopelma sp. New River about 8 years ago and named him Speck because he was so hard to find in his tiny vial. Now he is all grown up, due to mature next year. They were all over the place around 5 or 6 years ago, now not so much. Well any species of Aphonopelma is rare in collections now days aside from chalcodes, seemani, and the occasional hentzi. Moderatum is nice but where is the rest of the genus?
