I, like many others, I'm sure, have seen Aphonopelma sp. "New River" specimens, that are every bit as colorful as the Aphonopelma bicoloratums. I am lucky enough to keep, an A. schmidti, an A. sp. "Payson Blonde", AND an A. sp. "New River", and love them all dearly! Conrats again, on a BEAUTIFUL native North American Tarantula!:clap:Thanks, I really like her and would certainly purchase another sub adult/adult blonde type, the femurs are a lot darker in real life.
