I bought this guy at a reptile expo a few months back labeled huntsman and I would like to know what exactly what he is. DSCN0858.JPG

Heteropoda Venatoria, male. Females don't have the customized black trim and pin stripes.

Keeping sparassids like these in small enclosures can be easily done. You are relying on their durability and adaptability, but it is like keeping a cheetah or race horse in a small cage.

I was planning on rehousing it last molt but I didn't have the time do to all the running around I had to do the last two months and I believe my specimen matured into a male this last molt.
