Help getting some photos for a video


New Member
Hello, I'm Feles Lucis, and although I'm not a tarantula keeper (mostly because it's considered enviromental crime in my country, which can put you in prison for some years), but I love watching videos from tarantula youtubers. Since I love this community so much, I would like to help it with what I can! So, I'm a student of linguistics and I'm learning Latin right now, so I decided I'll make a video on how to pronounce correctly the scientific names.
For me to illustrate better the species while a teach the pronunciation, I need some photos of those tarantulas, the difficult part is that a lot of photos are copywrited, so I can't actually use. So, if you own one of the following species, would you minding posting a photo of yours and giving me permission to use in my video? I'll also put the names of the people who helped with the photos as a way to give credit. I'm just a beginner youtuber, so there won't be much exposure, but I hope this video I'm recording will help you guys.
The species I need are:

* Poecilotheria metallica *Haplopelma lividum *Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens
*Grammostola Rosea *Pterinochilus murinus *Avicularia versicolor
*Citharischius crawshayi *Acanthoscurria geniculata *Chilobrachys huahini
*Nhandu chromatus *Brachypelma hamorii *Heteroscodra maculata

If you have any recommendation about a species which is hard to pronounce their name, please, be free to send be suggestions and the photos of additional species if you like. Thank you.

You may use some of my photos. I'm always down for helping with educating. :) I have a few pics of some of the species on your list. Not sure if they are the quality you are looking for but feel free to use them. :)

Heya, I found out I could use the photos from Wikipedia if I credited the people who shoot the fotos, but thanks for helping here! I already posted the video some days ago, I'll post here as well.

FTR, I think a video mispronouncing these names would be equally entertaining.
I plan to do a video taking parts of some videos from tarantula keepers at youtube so I can rate their pronunciation.

This is my channel.
