Meet Ember. safely arrived from Germany to the UK today. not best pic but she is a virtually black Brachypelma emelia. The red hairs that remain on the legs give the impression of smouldering charcoal....well it does to me.ha ha
@Tgotty90 I have a few adult emelia already and yes there is a dulling of colour between moults but have studied this one carefully and there is a lot more black hairs. the red hairs appear to be morw on the underside and the carapace is a lot darker but can still make out the tell tale triangle of the emelia.
