I saw one in a dull black and white photo in a book Haplopelma minax was its scientific name. Are they common in the hobby?

thanks,
John

yes, the H minax is now very common in the hobby, and another sp.of this genus is the Haplopelma lividum (cobalt blue) both has the same attitude & aggressive temperament but are a very intersting T's.
