What is the scientific name for the stout leg baboon? and are there any good pictures you can point to.
There is one at my local Pet shop and it is labels as a featherleg, but I know it isn't one. I've seen enough featherlegs to say with certainty, it isn't.

Once again, it is damn near impossible to correctly ID a species based on common name alone.

"stout leg" and "Feather leg"tarantulas may include:

Citharischius crawshayi
Coremiocnemus validus
Eucratiscelus longiceps
Heteroscodra maculata
Stromatopelma calceatum

and probably about 100 others.

Lokking at the names provided and searching for pictures, I'm vitually sure its Eucratoscelus pachypus.
I have a feeling I may be adding this one as I love the thick back legs.
