Is there a way to tell now? I don't know when her next molt will be.

She was sold to me as a Pink Zebra Beauty, but Someone told me that she looks like a Chaco, so I wanted to confirm with the experts on here. Thanks
That is a Grammostola pulchripes (Chaco)

Thank you Anastasia! I paid 80 for her, do you think that was a good price?

I got my pzb for 35 dollars without shipping because it was at a pet show. Mine was only about 4 inches though.

Here's a better picture of her. She's maybe 4-5 inches right now.

I know, right!? I was holding her earlier, and she seemed to really like it. She's soft like i didn't think possible! :D

I have 2 G. pulchripes and I will also cast my vote for that being one as well. They are easily one of my favorites.

Congratulations. It's a Chaco.

*Passes out Crickets to everyone* It's a Chaco! :D

That's cool! I've always wanted a chaco! And she's a great spider! I'm happy about this!

I know you've solved your mystery but in case anyone else was wondering, the back two legs on E. campestratus appear slightly thicker and bulkier than the rest. They also have prominent stripes on the femurs unlike G. pulchripes. Nice Chaco anyway :)
