    Hi guys.

    I work for an animal charity and we went to collect 3 tarantulas from a vacant flat where they had been left behind. I have a T already which i rescued last year, so took these ones in. The 1st is a baby, not sure what she is. The other two i think may be obts! Much bigger in size. Can anyone help?!
    Thanks ☺️
    The photos for poss obts are crap quality sorry

    can't tell anything form the 2nd and 3rd pic, all we can see is stripes going down the leg, which could be a number of different species. I've never been good at identifying the brown and brown T's so i'm no help on the first one either :(

    I'm guessing P. Cancerides--but it is a guess.

    The second lot of photos look like juvenile T.stirmi. Especially with the light colouration on the end of the front two pairs of legs.

    Definitely a Theraphosa. I'm more of an arboreal guy, so I'm not sure which one.

    You can tell from the pink toes and hairs on the tibia.
    Stirmi have no to few hairs on the tibia.

    Blondi have many hairs on tibia.

    apophysis.. I don't know..

    Just google the toe thing and you can figure it out from there.

    Personally, I'm going apophysis.

    Stirmi have pink boots on the front two pairs. Apophysis have pink on all four. Blondi have none.
    This is only at the sling/juvi stage. That's why I'm guessing stirmi. Plus they're the most commonly kept.
