    Woah, are these yours?!

    Not a good idea to have two spiders in the same enclosure. That can only end one way.. badly.

    It is Aphonopelma seemanni, and you should remove it ASAP

    I'm confused by this picture, why are they together? This is obviously an A. seemanni and what looks to be a B. albopilosum? I see your new to the forum, are you new to keeping Tarantulas? Get those apart! I would deffinately hope your not thinking you are gong to breed these...

    Why did you have them together? Sorry, you got some bad info, there are only a few varieties that can co-exist and these are definately not one. There's lots of credibal sources for proper husbandry info. Research is essential in this hobby man.

    You can get lucky keeping them together for a while. Eventually youll be missing a tarantula or worse they will both be dead.

    The mass percentage of cannibalistic behavior comes from females...they are just fat and not hungry at the moment. Even with that said we all know how a womans mood can change....:p Just kidding ladies....;)

    I'm so glad you found this forum in time to save you finding one or both your Ts dead. Keep them separate and enjoy them both. Any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

    Were here to help all we can. Do lots of research and no question is a stupid question. I'm glad they are seperated, and I'm glad you posted the photo so we could help. Also glad it was on this forum and not another ;). If you want a communal of tarantulas (like I have) look into N. Incei, they are very affordable and very easy to keep.
