Out of the three Goliath Birdeating species in the Theraphosa genus, I wanted to know which you think is coolest. The traditionally biggest, the blondi (whose common name is the same as the genus's name, which is weird), is actually the one with the smallest legspan, but it's the heaviest with a stockier body. The stirmi (Burgundy Goliath) weighs less, but has longer legs and bigger fangs and chelicerae (which makes me wonder how it can weigh less if it has the combination of longer legs and a thicker carapace with bigger chelicerae, but whatever). Finally, the apophysis (Pinkfoot Goliath) is the skinniest but has the longest legs of the three, while being a slight purplish shade. Which do you like the best? Tell me why.
