    I wouldn't like to say. The only Rosea we had was my son's, my little one is too small to compare.

    To be honest I've never been sure if there really is a difference.

    That's a rosea Phil. Maybe :D Porteri are grey with very little pink, rosea are reddish brown with more pink. From what I've seen.. they're just color forms of the same animal, which I believe, based on what I've read. My big female had no brown or red in her, she was grey, with very little pink on her carapice. Carapace? What we need is a breeder of rosea/porteri to tell us if their sacs produce a wide range of colors..but who keeps a bunch of rosea slings to adulhood? And what were the parents? Are they sure? :rolleyes::confused::mad: Most of us just go by the best educated guess we can make, and very few breeders/hobbyists/dealers actually KNOW exactly what they have, 100%. That goes for all species. They have no idea if they're selling hybrids. We have no idea either. Why do I always do this..:rolleyes: . Its a rosea. Final answer. Maybe. Lol

    I like someone who is decisive....PMSL.
    I am going to say based on the side by side pics that I have one of each and list them that way on my spreadsheet. Unless they are lesbians, no chance of hybridization with these two anyway ;) Cheers Mass. :)

    I’m thinking rosea too, there is just a bit of pink popping in and the hairs aren’t as “bushy” or stiff I guess? lmao. Best description I got. I say Rosea

    Look at that popping pink! I have seen the rosea come on almost a purple color? Does anyone have one like that? I would love to see it!
