    Help me ID! Just found a tarantula in my garden in Brazil (Belo Horizonte)

    I think it might be a Brazilian Red (Nhandu carapoensis), but I want to be sure. I'm completely new to tarantulas, never thought of keeping one! But it seems very interesting. Any help or tips would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Tarantula identification

    I went into a pet sore and they had this one tarantula that had apparently been there for awile. Part of the problem is that it was unlabeled for a long time. The other was that they "didnt know it was going to be mean". They gave it to me for free to get it out of the store. They labeled it a...

    Is this a pamphobeteus sp flammifera sling?

    A friend sent me a picture from a small mom and pop pet shop saying that they were not sure even what to put it as or how to price it.
