hello there, i have enjoyed all the inputs by everyone here on this forum. just wanted to say well done for the success ;P

Any way, back to the point. I was looking at the pictures of Scott's S. morsitan, and realised that it is a different shade, it is green. Could this be just a colour morph, or do they gradually turn green whent hey get older. Here is a picture of my morsitan, and it is hardly green. Your morsitan also looks bigger than mine, how big is it, and how big do they get, because mine is currently 5inch big.

enjoy =D

Your's looks like S. morsitans. It is a color morph of the bl;ue legged ones. Possibly a ssp. of morsitans. I have one of each in my collection. I originally thought my yellow legged one to be S. subspinipes but I have since received information proving it to be morsitans. My yellow legged one is just over 6" but i'm not sure if it's full grown or not.

There's a pic of mine in a thread down the list titled "East African Yellow Leg"
