I recently bought a spiderling from a pet store, they were selling it as a
"Black Birdeater". At first, I thought it was a Haplopelma minax, but now I'm
not so sure. The spiderling is about 2", and is mostly black and dark brown.
The abdomen is dark brown, with a light brown chevron pattern in the middle.
There is a black stripe running down the middle of the chevron. The
cephelathorax is dark gray, with a black starburst pattern. Each leg has a
black femur, with the rest of the leg being dark brown. There is a yellow
stripe at every joint. The first two pairs of legs have a slight yellow tinge.
The spiderling constructed a burrow last night. Any ideas?
