Really nice littel spid!
Although I'm wondering what eyes you're wearing if you think it looks much like the A.Moorae or a Seemani..

Great looking "T" !! Was that collected at your home town, or just somewhere around the Arizona area?. It's definately a beauty.

The scientific name is: Aphonopelma Sp. Highway 10.
Its a rare sp. found in Pima Co. Az. . In the book Tarantula's of the U.S and Mexico, it was described by 1 male found in that area.

It is currently being studyed at the U of K by a professor who does T's. I donated 2 adult females, 1 mature male and a juvie. from the same colony for his study. We'll see..
I also gave Ian his juvie. He dogged on it alot, but now he loves it. :rolleyes:

A. Seemani.............?

I don't think so:?

Looks kinda "Blue" to me:)

Still a beauty of a T!=D

I wish I could walk outside and just find something like that.
