This is a female, as she gets older she will bulk up alittle but yes it's a leggy species. Males are bright colored and short lived while females are a dull but dark purple with charcoal legs and long lived. I keep min in a 6 gallon enclosure with 5 inches of substrate, hide, and a fake plant. They are moisture dependent with high humidity but like all tarantulas if your comfortable they are comfortable. Just make sure you mist it a couple times a week when they reach juvenile stage.
It was a confirmed female from Jamie's tarantulas website. Males are a more colorful while females are darker. Yes I have a flash camera which I used to capture this picture. In what way do you think its male? I'm curious
