    I think this one is adult, almost 10 cm in legspan.
    The spinnerets are extremely long, situated ventrally at the posterior part of the abdomen.

    It is a diplurid from Brazil. Used to go under the name of L. magdalene. They web A LOT, are not aggressive from what I've seen. Don't know what their venom is like.

    I had the chance to buy one a little while ago from Tarantula Canada, but I opted not to because the dealer isn't so knowledgeable about true spiders and much much more about tarantulas. I remember seeing similar species and people telling me that their venom is bad. I could be wrong though so don't take my word for it.
