Just wandered.
Leggy or not is awesome looking spider:T:
Hello,
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.

Just out of curiosity. I'm assuming this picture is taken with camera flash? Looks too colourful to me to be female (I'll add I don't keep this species) I'm guessing you've sexed its moult yourself?

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

It doesn't look very bulky built either as far as I'm aware adult females are solid stocky spiders... How big is this T out of interest ? :)
