IN a different scene of that movie it shows a Brachypelma smithi I believe, but that one doesn't look like a B.smithi. Probably some kind of Brachy though.

So they switched them to do that scene? Drat, I felt so clever.

B. auratum maybe? It looks like it has yellow/orangeish knees, but nowhere near as bright as a B. smithi, at least imho.

I love Marv's scream though! {D

Oh yeah I know in that scene it isn't B.smithi, but in I am gonna say this again, I believe there is a scene where it shows it as a B.smithi.

the one on the face looks like a smithi, but mine doesnt have tan on the underside of the opisthosoma. I am guessing A. seemanni because it does look a bit striped

I was thinking that as well, but I was thinking it would be a bit more skittish then that.

In that clip it looked like a younger chaco (G. aureostriata) to me..... Been a long time since I saw that movie though.....

Why the brachy definitely comment? Just curious, not challenging.

I'm fairly certain that's no A. seemanni.

All searches point to a rosea.... nothing I would consider reliable was found though.

In the early 90's there were not so many species available... some brachypelma, aphonopelma, Avicularia and the G. rosea. Maybe more than that but not easily available. I think G. aureostriata was not yet known, it was describe in 2001 if I remerber well.

No way it's an A. seemani if seemanis are generally as skittish as mine is.
