    I have had this tarantula for a few months now, and I don't know what is it.
    Its size is about 1,75''.
    I have an idea, but first I want to hear your opinions.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here it is:

    Looks a lot like a King Baboon to me.

    I don't normally do this sort of post as I'm a bit of a beginner, but the T and those lovely holes make me think of my H 'gigas'. The T is hairyer than mine though.

    I would guess king baboon as well.

    That was my guess, a C. crawshayi.

    What it's weird is that it seems too hairy to be one, although I don't know if that changes when they grow.

    waldo, do you have pics of yours?

    I don't have any recent pics, sorry. She does have lots of hair just like yours though.

    My first instinct is a C. Crawshayi as well, post some new pics when you can!

    It is definably a king baboon. I have one that loked just like that when it was little. They are neat little buggers, wait till it starts to hiss :D :D
