    Hi everyone. I have always been a big fan of the brachypelma and was wondering how many different species other members have on this Forum, I will start the ball rolling! I have:

    Brachypelma Albiceps x 8
    Brachypelma Albopilosum x 4 (3 true and 1 hobby form)
    Brachypelma Annitha x5
    Brachypelma Auratum x2
    Brachypelma baumgarteni x4
    Brachypelma Boehmei x3
    Brachypelma Emelia x6
    Brachypelma Klaasi x4
    Brachypelma schroederi x1
    Brachypelma Smithi (Hamorii) x 9
    Brachypelma vagans x 2

    ....and what I lovingly call my "mystery brachy" - Likely albiceps with either Klasii or boheimi at a guess looking at leg/abdomen colours (picture is in my gallery if interested).

    What have other members got?
    *Edit: just ordered B. kahlenbergi and B. verdezi now :)

    I got a ten-spot that Phil is the Brachy master on this site!! Sabulosum excepted. I saw an epicureanum this weekend. While I really love my wife, if it weren’t for her tamping down my tarantula love, I definitely would have picked it up! @Arachnoclown : when will your sabulosum’s be ready to ship???

    B. hamorii, 1, B boehmei, 1. My first spider was a hamorii way back in 1990. She was easy and docile and didn't mind when one was in her cage. The boehmei is a bit more skittish and runs for cover on occasion when the top door is opened. She has never flicked bristles however and is a good eater. None of them were or are handled.
