So I bought this gal from my local pet store for only $5 and I have absolutely no idea what she is. She was not labeled anything other than Peruvian Red Rump, I think. I could totally be making that up. Anyway, she has pretty typical characteristics and from a distance looks about like a Brachypelma vagans. She is considerably more 'wooly' though. The urticating hairs are also more orange than red and not very prominent. One more thing about this girl; she is very defensive! She is super quick to throw up a threat display with minimum provocation. She molted very recently so hopefully the shot of the spermathacae will help narrow it down a bit. Thanks in advance!
