My webcam is on the fritz now so i cant take a photo but I just wanted to describe a new spider I just got and see if anybody can give me a clue as to waht it is. That store owner had no clue. I traded my adult GOliath bird eater for this spider and a couple more. THis new one might be a baby bird eater but I am unsure. It has made itself a silk nest in one corner of the aquarium he is housed in. He rarely leaves it except at night to hunt crickets and it has a large appatite. It is very orange and doesnt have very many markings. On the top of the cephalothorax the dimple is black and the lines merging into it are also quite dark. So far I am thinking it may be some species of Baboon tarantula or a baby bird eater. THoughts?
