    Ryan, that is one of the best looking boehmeis I've ever seen. She's a beaut.
     
  4. She is a looker. And that red is the true color, nothing photo shopped there. I few people that have been by my place can vouch for that!

    Lots of younger boehmeis have a very pronounced black triangle on the carapace like that. I don't think all do though. I think I remember a brief discussion on the topic several months back.

    You've got a cutie there. Maybe she'll grow up to be as gorgeous as Ryan's big girl there!

    Hell... hopefully MINE will!

    Definitely B. boehmi. B. emilia does not have a red patella.

    Yep she is really pretty, Ryan if you get her to drop a sac let me know so I can get some slings form her. She aint nice though, I tried to hold her but it wasn't something she was very interested in doing.:cool:

    My first thought was a hybrid, but maybe you just got a weird colored one. Either way, I like it!
     
  12. And what exactly made you think that? Nothing about that little guy says anything other then boehmei.

    I have never seen a triangle that dark in a boehmi though. Mine is almost the exact same size, and its carapace has some black in it, but nothing near that dark. All of the pics I have seen of them, including the ones posted in here, are the same. The knees are also very bright, but I guess thats not too uncommon. I probably just have a pale one. Overall, the coloring seemed...off.

    Of course, this is all just what came to my mind, and I would trust you guys' judgment over mine.
