Tarantula identification


New Member
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 "mysore ornamental" or what would be a Poecilotheria striata but there is no way that it is. Maybe a heteroscodra maculata? I'm not sure. Do Togo starburst baboons ever have black undersides? The feet have blue and purple metallic shine to them as well.

*edit I just had someone suggest Stromatopelma calceatum (feather leg baboon) and looking at pictures the underside matches closer to this guy.
