Is this smithi or Hamorii?
today, the guy had it for 4 years now. Was said to be acapulco local i think.
its 4.5 inch female. He had it since 1 inch.
safe to say Hamorii then?If he purchased it as a smithi 4 years ago, I believe that was BEFORE the revision on these two species. Back then, the "Mexican Red Knee" now known as B. hamorii was known as B. smithi and the "Mexican GIANT Red Knee" was known as Brachypelma annitha. The revision changed the name of Brachypelma annitha to Brachypelma smithi. Now, Brachypelma hamorii is your common Mexican Red Knee that probably started the tarantula hobby.
If that is the same tarantula as the first one posted then it is still hamorii. Imma gonna wanna see a photo of him? Unsrunched-up to include the carapace.
