So I bought an A. crinirufum sling a while back and it's become my favourite T. I'm having a hard time finding photos of an adult specimen though. There's this one pic that pops up here and there of a T with blueish fangs but I was wondering if anyone had one and could provide pictures or a description of what it'll likely look like when it grows up? Thanks!

There was a smaller Theraphosinae sp. with a blue metallic sheen at the chelicera, which was sold in the pet trade as "Aphonopelma burica" or also as "Aphonopelma crinirufum".
These species differs clearly into morphologically features from the A. crinirufum.
So if your spiders develops these blue metalic color, it is not a crinirufum. If not, it´s maybe a crinirufum.
