Ok so the shop said it was a Brachypelma Boehmi but ive come to believe its a Brachypelma Emilia

Currently its about 3 inches big this is including leggies

I will keep pictures quite big so you can get a good looksie



Really bad pic but a "from the top" view



So...am I right?

xxxxxxxx

so am I right in that we are very lucky to have a lovely looking tarantula. Now the most lovely to me is the "cobalt blue"
But im sure that will be a few years before we have one of them

He is very pleased with his gift and strangly so am I! I wont touch it or hold it though, and im sure he wont but...never in a million years would I hold something as big as that

she/he we dont know yet.

He did mist the tank last night, she/he didnt like it. nearly ran out the tank. was only ONE spray. in the morning he/she was on the glass...I guess wanted to get higher up and dryer? or maybe just chilling out on the glass by the "air" bit

And, you should keep them on a thick layer of peat. As a first T, I thinks most people will find them boring, since they spend the most of their lives safely hidden in their burrows.

we wont be buying any more for a long while yet. I have always just found the colbalt very attractive with its lovely bright blue.

But scorpio, we have a brachypelma Emilia not anything else at the moment.

Well, it looks like a great first tarantula to me! Smile Lori says this is a gorgeous species.

Funny thing about the cobalt -- our friends' is NEVER out of its burrow, but when Lori and I bug-sat it was out every night! Razz It must have liked us.

Probably. Just give it some time; Lori's brachys don't web a whole lot. Neither does her rosie, actually.

Beautiful spider!
At that size you are probably safe to say "she"
terrestrials will web then tear it down when they want,need,etc... sometimes several times a day until they have settled down.

Ok. so now he wants a curly hair tarantula:Brachypelma albopilosa

I have to admit im a bit concerned since read on the internet it can be agressive and skittish and very good at escaping!!!

It says its a burrowing tarantula! So what substrate? the soil and vercumilate we can buy in the shop or just soaked plantation soil?

We wont rehome the tarantula until I see your replies

B. albo is great -- Dragontears from AB donated one to the bug zoo, and she's perfect for taking out and showing the kids, even letting them pet her legs. I think it's a great beginner T. I describe it to the kids as a "furry rock with 8 legs."

The best substrate I can recommend for any T is just cocofiber kept to the appropriate moisture level for the species (in this case, dry with a water dish).
