Why do you call them 'Brazilian Red Rump' as they have no red abdomen when they mature? Are you not mixing up iheringi and actaeon?

Kinda looks like G. mollicoma (sp?) doesn't it?
Dennis, what you know in Holland as G.mollicoma is G.iheringi. For some reason we Dutch mix these grammostola species up.

Yeah the adults I've seen don't have the red rump, but are still very gorgeous. I'd like to have a big female.

The thing is this, I live in south Brazil, and I´ve been told that G. iheringi are common here, but being these two species so alike I´ve been thinking perhaps it is G. actaeon and not G. iheringi... I´m planing in go T hunting when the temperature raise a little see if I can get me one or two...

the question is: is the difference between g. actaeon and g. iheringi noticeable?

Brazilian Red Rump...

This T is number one on my list beautiful is all I can say with my mouth open

I would agree, at or certainly at or near the top of my personal favorite list!

Not very flicky at all, G. actaeon actually start out pretty small with a red rump and black hairs overall while a B. vagan would need to get around an inch long before darkening up. We have seen several Brazilian red rumps sold at pet stops that were actually Mexican Red Rumps (B. vagans). G. actaeon are rarely offered.

I agree! My sub adult female eats like a pig, is a slob, and has an attitude! :}

Names?

What's in a common name? not much. So much for Blue Fang too, when they mature....
