aph.moderatum

ask me again next tuesday i will have my first one then. i have heard from a pretty good source that a freshly molted adult is a real stricking tarantula, unlike most of the other aph. spp.

I have a 2 incher... very nice looking spider. The colour is very subtle but not at all drab. It is also by far my fattest spider!

Mine is pretty laid back but I have read that they can be quite cranky.

If you read the Schultz book, and look at the bite section, most of the bites the Schultz' received came from the Rio Grand Golds (Aphonopelma moderatum).
For a new world species, everyone talks about how quick they are to bite.

I have 6 or 7 of them of different sizes.....I don't recall any of them kicking hair, they seem to be skittish and run and hide.

Yep! Got a deal on 5 of them so me and a couple friends split them up. Of the two I had left, I donated one to the local Butterfly Pavillion and kept a little 3"er. They're one of my favorite Aphono's actually. Mine's also got a fairly mellow disposition.
