Happy Birthday Hat!
AW thanks toby!!! its PERFECT
thoughts on this newly discovered tarantula?? Also, why does one picture look like it’s colorful and the rest look like it’s gray all over? is that normal for tarantulas?
i think its awesome! i love the poecilotheria genus. i think it’s very beautiful. the more colorful photo of it is the underside :) they have yellow “warning bands” on their legs to let predators know that they shouldn’t be messed with when they throw a threat posture. poecilotheria species tarantulas have some of the most potent venom of any tarantulas, though it isn’t fatal to humans it’s definitely not something you would want to get bitten by.

i love these things! i used to have some as pets when i was little.
they’re so neat!
The photo didn’t load properly, but the link worked, so I fixed it up.
Hmm, I’m rather unskilled with it comes to tarantulas, especially ones from out of the USA. But that doesn’t mean I won’t try to ID your friend here!
All spiders listed below were found on this site (Bird Spiders website by Rick West).
I didn’t check everywhere online- there a lot of tarantulas in that region!- but I’ve found three spiders that could be the one in your photo:
- Grammostola andreleetz
- Pamphobeteus vespertinus (probably not- the legs are too thin) Link is for Google images
- Avicularia pulchra
I’m going to spread this post and photo around, see if any of my tarantula friends can help.
this is not a grammostola, or pamphobeteus.
this is an arboreal tarantula, you can tell by the legs.
it seems to have urticating hairs, so it’s likely an avicularia.
hard to tell which avic this is since its in a threat posture.
i’ve never heard of an avicularia pulchra, but your guess looks somewhat like the photo from what i can see.
One of my ADORABLE Phiddipus audax spiderlings!
By the way, these cuties are available for sale as pets! Visit my page for more details.

Plenty of spider moms give their babbies mass piggyback rides. Heck, just about all spiders make pretty good mothers.
