Hey

well on the first pic id does seem to look like the g. Rosea, but if your friend is correct when he said 7 months old and you said its 2" then i cant see it being a rosea, they only reach 2" in wel over a year even 2 sometimes.

But same here i don't know what kind of t that is.

But its the kind that you will enjoy lol{d

Agreed with the statement of it being WAY to young to be a 2" G. rosea. Also, it would appear to be to big for it to be any of the Brachypelma, of the brachys ive owned/seen even the males take a year to reach 2-3" DLS. but, if its a male and its being well fed/heated then its possible to be that big. I would ask your friend if 7 months is the age or the time that he has owned it...that will help figure out if the age/growth rate is appropriate, which will in turn help identify the T a bit better.

a bit more information, at second glance the carapace and chelicerea appear to be similar in design to that of some sort of Grammostola.

Could it be Paraphysa scrofa. They look similar to G. rosea, but are much smaller. It doesn't appear to have that mirror match that P. scrofa are known for though.

Whatever it is, it's pretty. You should probably send it to me for further investigation. ;)
