Well... all T's go through certain changes in coloration/markings as they mature from sling to juvie to adult. G. rosea are much less pronounced in this than many other species. Are you confusing the differences between color forms with changes that take place with maturation?

If you want to see some reall cool color changes with growth, have a look at Pamphobeteus, Avicularia and GBB's. They are awesome that way.

Not quite sure what your asking...

But when my red color phase male molted mature he went from brown with a redish tint to a brilliant pinkish red.

Generaly all Ts will dull in color when approching a molt and be fresher and more brilliant after a molt. Also most T's start pretty colorless as slings pink/white etc... with some having different markings. Then as they grow they start getting "adult colors" - Some T's though are brilliantly colored as slings (babies) then may change colors as adult Avicularia vercicolor is the most stricking color change that I'm aware of - going from a bright blue as a sling and changing to a mix of colors as an adult.

check out the picture gallarys here. :)

No, the "shades" on "intensity" of the color might change with maturing and molting, but if you have a pink G rosea, it is staying pink, if you have a red G rosea, its staying red, etc. There are several different colors among G rosea, but they do not change.

Well what are you looking for? If your looking for a pet that changes color, Id go with one of those lizards that change color. But G. rosea can be really nice tarantulas to have. Especially if you want one you can easily handle and "show off" with out worrying about getting biten or anything. But I mean if you want a tarantula with really vibrant colors, your best bet would be an old world species, but you cant ( or at least you REALLY shouldnt ) handle old world. But if your looking for cheap, easily handled, easily cared for, low maintence tarantula, then G rosea is PERFECT. There color is the most vibrant, but its not just plain old boring brown. Some rosea species are almost black, some are brown/red, most are brown/pink. More of a salmon color then pink in my opinion.

The OP didn't say anything about looking for a chromatophoric pet. There are plenty of people that would disagree that a rosie is good for handling. And there are plenty of colorful NW species. Please stop trying to pass your limited knowledge off as that of an expert.

Well if you're thinking of buying an advertised RCF sling borne from RCF parents, don't be too sure. Not ALL their slings turn out to be RCF.

Well, right after it molts, it will look like this.






After a year or more, it's colors begin to fade gradually.


...until it looks like this right before a molt.


So yeah, it won't turn into a different coilor form unless it was that to begin with. If I were you, I'd get a juvie if you can find one, so you can be sure it will be a RCF. If you get a sling, you might be waiting a few years to find out.

Hobo, it also depends on your G.rosea RCF. I have a female that stays a great red colour until she molts (which she is nearing soon). Perhaps your photos wash out the colour, but mine seems to be more vibrant at premolt than yours even after she's faded substantially.

You can come check it out once I've settled into my new place in Vancouver next week. :D

If you cant handle a G. rosea, you should not be handling T's at all. Unless you get one of the rare "psycho rosies". And duh there are colorful new worlds, but old worlds, over all are much more vibrant and colorful. Get over your self. This forum is not about making your self look like an expert and making others look like idiots. It is about learning from others, and helping others to the best of your ability.
