So my new boss seems interested in tarantula's so I brought my 3" A. versicolor in to show her and let it crawl on her hand and it actually shot poop on her :evil:

then i showed her a picture of a P. ornata, here's where I am getting worried. Almost every descrpition of them I've seen they are described as being tan. When I look at lets us for instance Randy May's photograph of one I see green or the color that I see my brain says, "Yep, that's definatly green" so I showed my boss and she's like "You need to get your eye's checked, thats a tan not green". So would anyone else describe them as green or is there a funny connection in my head?

Well, i just looked at some P ornata pics and it sure looked green to me. Maybe they dull as a molt approaches. I bet most of the pics we see are freshly molted t's since that's when they're so photogenic.
