O aureotibialis, also called the Tailand Golden Fringe, is my most unique tarantula. These guys appear rather infrequently on dealers' lists and are in my experience not easy to find. I wish I had better pictures of this one but he's turned into more of a pethole than my emps and Haplopelma lividum combined. It's all black with some slight striping on the abdomen. The coolest part though is he has these bright orange hairs on his legs. Just thought I'd share and I wanted to know if anyone else has experience with this genus.

Hard to tell from the pics, but it sounds like it looks pretty cool! Lori and I lucked out when we found a pair of "Ornithoctonus sp." at a show last month for $12 each, but people on AB are giving her crap for breeding them (Mad) because we're not sure which species they are and a couple people think they're Haplopelma.

Our experience: the male is a SPAZ* and the female was really receptive to his mating. None seem to be too pet-holeish right now.

*When we first tried putting him into his own tank, he flipped out and was running around while flailing all his legs, but not really moving very far. When we put him back in his tank after the mating, he did the same "flail without going anywhere." Kind of startling to someone used to scorpions.

I'm not sure of the scientific differences between the two but comparing my H lividum to my O aureatibialis the Hap doesn't have any extended setae from the back legs and has a less shiny appearance to the carapace. Other than that they are pretty similar. Same sub-family though I forget the name. Let me know if you get a sac, I love this guy even though I never see him and would be in the market for slings. Very Happy
