    I know that both tarantulas are gorgeous but I'm undecided between so I thought I'd ask on here on other peoples opinions. I am swinging towards the B boehmi because of its gorgeous red/orange legs but I'm unsure.

    Thank you for any replys

    How about a nice Brachypelma klaasi instead lol

    Seriously though, which ever one calls to you most is what you should get ^.~

    While both look nice I recommend B. emilia. Here is a picture of my female.

    I'm sure we all agree that even if one can decide right away, the only correct way to go is to get all the Brachys - maybe few of each :D

    Why do you like emilia over boehmei?

    Personally, and this is just my opinion, all, and I honestly mean ALL,
    Bachypelma are great.
    I cannot see any wrong choices, while not always the flashiest of T's,
    there's something to be said for each and every one of them.
    If my finances were in better shape,
    I would have a couple of each and every one of them.

    Both look amazing, but the markings on the B. emilia are stunning and fairly unique (the carapace in particular).

    Boehmei. Hands down the most striking Brachy God ever created. I have two and plan on getting a few more. All are great of course, but yeah. Boehmei.

    I just love the reds on the boehmi or the klassi. If you set up the right decor in your enclosure, they can really pop.

    There's just too many good choices out there.

    The real question is who's going to strap 100's of tarantulas to their body and come visit me in Australia? ;)
