Brachypelma baumgarteni - Imported from Mexico

The photo of the female depositing the eggs into the layer of her webbing is own by Jorge Mendoza I do have permission to use and post his photo. The female and mature male were bred by Jorge Mendoza therefore the babies are from wild caught parents. A big thank you to Francisco Torres for importing these babies into the USA.
Here is a post of one of the slings, the mom of the sling, and my old female that died about a year ago.

I am exited and relief that there is a new bloodline of these species available now. I purchased ten of them months ago and finally they have arrived. Only 100 of them were imported. I won't be selling any of mine so please don't ask.

I do miss my old girl very much RIP.

IMG_4575.JPG IMG_4577.JPG Brachypelma baumgarteni - Second Generation Inbreeding Specimen:

Molted this morning he is about 4.5" inches and finally the "Lightning Bolt" pattern is visually seen a bit more. If I recall this specimen was born between 2014-15. Can't wait for my little ones that were exported out of Mexico gets bigger.

Yeah I’m glad I have these photos for comparison with what a hybrid between B. baumgarteni x boehmei looks like vs a pure species B. baumgarteni.

@SteveIDDQD thank you for you comment of my photos.

Great pictures and gorgeous spiders!
Is the difference between "Dark Form" and "Light Form" region specific or variation in exemplars within the same region?

Good morning folks! In the last few weeks I had a total of five specimens of the different light and dark form baumgarteni variants molt. Also one immature male baumgarteni matured early this morning.
