Ok, that's actually what I was thinking. I had a chance to buy a female at the reptile show in Columbus a couple months ago and she wasn't quite as striking as pics I've seen of males.Originally posted by Phillip
Females look like that too. For a while I suspected mine was male but upon closer inspection it seems to be a nice looking girl . The big difference is when mature the males get the purple on the legs as well.
I guess it depends on what it's worth to you. If you see it as just another large theraphosid, then you may want to spend your money on something else. They're one of the hardest tarantulas to get fertile eggsacs from. Would breeding be an issue to you?Originally posted by Sean
is this spider worth buying kinda pricey is it worth it?
