Hi guys, :)

I've had this little T for a while now. Bought it when it was a tiny sling from someone on the forum as a Red n White(N. Chromatus) Ive been waiting molt after molt to see the colours come out and they just havent come. So I asked someone at the expo this weekend and they informed me that at his size he should have the RnW colouring...

Can I please get a second opinion and an identification if it is indeed not what it was sold as...

Here are some pics:

I forgot to add that, ever since it was a sling it burrowed a lot... I thought it was maybe B.vagans but behaves very differently to my other 3 B.vagans...

Mmm, looks like some kind of brachypelma. Maybe a hybrid? :eyepoke:

Looks mostly like a vagans, but with the lighter carapace, maybe a B. albiceps ?, or hybrid of the two, definitely NOT N.chromatus !

Africa is a tough country. When the going gets tough, we get going.

Your T looks a lot like the T in this thread:

www.tarantulas.co.za/forum/identify-this...range-color-b-vagans

... and everybody sort of concluded that that one was a B.vagans - or at least the 'hobby form' vagans (a lot of hybrids of these floating around)

Someone pulled a fast one on you for sure. That's not an N.chromatus at all. Looks like one of these vagans/albopilosum crosses that I saw a while back.

Sorry about that mate, but I really don't know what that is.
