The petstore I frequent is more of an "exotic" pet store but I guess they can't know everything. They have a tarantula labeled as a Thailand Black and when I asked what the scientific name was they said Haplopelma_minax. The weird thing about it is that it was more brownish and seemed to have a bald abdomen(w/chevron markings). It is already kind of big (and very leggy). The guy told me it was real fiesty and that's why it was bald but i know old worlders don't do that......anybody know what happened? The only thing that didn't look right is that there might not have been enough humidity, other than that the conditions seemed fine.
