It's really hard to say what it was that was at the pet store. Anything could be labeled "Venezuelan Bird Eater". My guess would be it is likely just a T. blondi given the rarity of T. apophysis and unlikelihood of actually finding on in a pet store. Generally, though they are very similar species, with T. apophysis just being rarer and more expensive and having the faint "pink feet".Need some help, I recently saw a Venezuelan Bird Eater at a petstore and was wondering what the main difference was from the know "Goliath Bird Eater" is it the same tarantula just a different name? Thanks for any help.
