I loveeee the T. apophysis. It's the only one I'm willing to put up with when it comes to the urticating hairs. Hopefully I can find one someday.

First time I see all 3 species as sling compared. This might help some people in the future. Nice one, José.

That's one of the reasons I posted all three as slings. I will also be posting photos of them every time they molt.

By the way where the heck you've been at lately?

There are three Theraphosa apophysis, three blondi and three stirmi that came out of the Europe. I'm keeping mine for now and the other six are going to be sold by the other two sellers. Each seller have three each.
I believe one of the sellers will probably try to sell the three species at the ATS Conference coming up in the next month.

Nice pics, thanks!
Thanks Rick! Not the best photos but it will do for now.

Great to see comparison pics Jose, I knew the difference in slings. I read it on the boards but never seen all three posted to compare.

Theraphosa apophysis all 8 legs have pink
Theraphosa blondi no pink on legs
Theraphosa stirmi front 4 legs with pink

How big are these slings?
Oh I would have to say at least 1" inch. The Theraphosa apophysis is leggier than the other two. The stirmi is the smallest but not by much though.

Yes that is correct! I also wanted the photos to be taken outside in natural lighting at the same time same location so people can see all three with the same lighting.

This is my 7-8" very young adult female apophysis. Mostly legs like Jose mentioned above, the leggiest of the Theraphosa's. P5251331.JPG

All the tarantulas in the world are all the same species/hybrid. Brachypelma annitha and smithi same species, it's coming soon!

Your Hapolopus sp. "Large" and "small" brocklehursti and geniculata etc. all the same.

You haveTheraphosa apophysis for sale?
No but Mr. Joe Rossi does.

Back in the day I use to have adults females apophysis and blondi but never did take photos on any of them. The only photo of an adult female that I have between the three is the stirmi. This photo was taken in 2009 wild caught female stirmi.
