I just picked up two beauties from a reptile show. The first is a 5" gorgeous b. smithi female:







The other one is an unknown species but still beautiful:

Ohh, I wonder if it's the thai tiger that I have, kinda looks like it, but it's been a long time since I've seen mine, and if it is the same as mine and a male, I have a lovely lady waiting for him when he matures. Wink But I'm thinking Haplopelma sp. ("Vietnam")/ Haplopelma vonwirthi
AKA Asian Chevron I haven't been able to find hardly any info on them, just this site...


http://www.eightlegs.org/pag/pagan.html I think revolt has a female of this sp as well.

Are they that rare in the hobby? I think i got a pretty good deal on the two Ts then. How big do they get?

Well in the for sales on AB I just noticed an ad that had a few females of this sp included in it, and both revolt and I have want ads on AB for MM's of this sp and no one has replied to my thread, lots of lookers, but no one has e-mailed or PMed me or replied to the thread. I'm not sure how big they get, but the website I listed says a 6" leg span and my female has got to be 5+" I know she was over 4.5" when I got her, and she recently molted, which is also why I'm looking for a male. Be careful, my female is VERY aggressive, but now that she has her burrow I never see her any more, on a rare occasion I'll see a couple legs sticking out her hole. She was a bit darker in the rump then yours, and now after the molt she is even darker, but the females of this Sp are on the dark side, no pun intended, male a bit lighter. Have you had a look-see yet?

I haven't even tried. The guy told me it was aggressive so it is still in the container. Wanted to set up the enclosure right the first time. I'll set it up tonight and have a peek if I can.

yeah i was also thinking vonwirthi, but mine is a little but lighter in color
so maybe it COULD be vonwirthi, but there is a chance it isnt.

Revolt, I just think my camera is better then yours. Smile Actually, my T looks just like yours. Only difference is probably the camera and mine may need a molt. I noticed it had a roach in with it that was eaten yet.

haha Razz
yeah once it molts them you will know for sure if it is or isnt
but the one thing that really caught my eye on yours is the darkness of the carapace

It may just be shadowed. When I rehouse it I'll get a top view pic of the carapace.

Lovely! I can tell the one is Haplo like others said, but it's hard to be sure of exact species for me.
