This is what they start looking like when they get mature. Juveniles have much more muted colors.

GORGEOUS! I plan on getting one as my first pet tarantula after I graduate. The colors are beautiful (and I'm sure the males are "prettier" than the females, although a girl would be bigger and live longer) and I can't wait to play with him!

:lol: It's just a ceramic aquarium decoration she can crawl into as a hide. I coaxed her on top of it to get a better shot. =D

Looks like a Chalcodes or a Carlsbad Green Sp.. That's New Mexico though, silly me :D

Gorgeous lady! Looks like she could be my baby's sister, hehe. They honestly do look quite similar, I've got a pic in my gallery to prove lmao

This one is currently considered an A. chalcodes, but there are enough differences according to some that it may be a new species. I'm in the process of looking at DNA sequences to see if they help any. =D
