    The pinkier is P. Nighricolor, I think

  • Elizabeth Pruett

    I think they are the same, just one is a bigger more vibrant male. It would probably find a mate easier then the other would in the wild

    Love the videos, but leaving those two T's next to eachother like that is completely irresponsible and negligent.

    Not trying to be negative but , the boxes that these tarantulas are in, very small. A water dish could barely fit in there. The substrate Looks completely dried out. Then you force them out with metal tongs, easily could break their fangs. I really do enjoy this channel. The care and husbandry. Could be better!!!

    You do realize these creatures don’t leave their hides/burrows for any reason other than to mate and hunt for prey? They aren’t like fish or other pets that need to have lots of space to swim/wander. Larger enclosures would be a waste of unnecessary space. Substrate is dry because these tarantulas come from a dry climate. He takes care of each species individually and the ones that need more humidity have it. He doesn’t “force them out with tongs” he uses a plastic straw to coax them out. Nice try. He does this for a living. I think he knows what he’s doing.

    I am pretty sure he is Pamphobeteus nigricolor. Also there is a lot of cross breeding in genus unfortunately in the trade.

    Is that second ones common name called a Giant blue bloom? I bought a small sling from my exotic pet store but it had no species name on the tag unlike most of their slings. It has very long legs for his size kind of like that. Regardless that is a gorgeous tarantula. Massive leg span too.

    Hey Petko, I don´t know if you will read this but maybe I can help you. I have a Pamphobeteus sp. platyomma male in his first mold where he got his coloration and he looked exactly like this boy you got there. Maybe we you could contact me and i will send you some pictures of mine then we could compare the Tarantulas ? And I have to say I realy enjoy your Videos, I really learned much about care and husbandry from you and I apply this to my Tarantulas :D Thanks Petko :) Greetings from Germany

    I currently have a pink toe tarantula and as we all know... it's never easy to stop with one. *pauses and looks at 25 fish tanks* I've been working on a new terrarium for a new arboreal T. My current was a rescue from people that thought it would be cool to own T's but then were afraid to open her box to change her water or feed her. I watch Josh's frogs ...yes, for T's, but I was curious where you guys shop for yours. I'm in the US. I'm also finishing up a bearded dragon tank, all tanks are bioactive so I set them up and allow them to "stabilize" as if they were fish tanks. Lots of research later I'm ready to look for a bearded dragon as well. Thanks for any suggestions!

    He’s crumpled up in the corner because you’re keeping him bone dry. They need to be kept cool humid and damp otherwise they will go infertile. If this is how you’ve raised them - the males are probably infertile already anyway. What a shame.

    The chance for a female in 3 slings is 50:50 - for each sling. You just get 3 rolls of the dice.

  • Wet Welder

    The first male looks like a Pamphobeteus Nigricolor I say that because of the definition between the marking on the carapace the bigger one is definitely a Pamphobeteus Platyomma! The female would be difficult to identify however I would be able to tell if you uploaded some pictures of her with her juvenile markings/color. I’ve owned a lot of different Pamphobeteus species and it is much easier to identify the species when they are juveniles or adult males most of the mature females are almost indistinguishable with the exception of the Ultramarinus.

    The second one looks like a Pamphobeteus Platyoma and the First one was the Pamphobeteus Machala because of the patterns in the carapace.

    The beautiful male probl was upset cause he has this small enclosure for his big booty lol 😆 Get him a bigger enclosure and he'll most likely calm down a bit, but idk anything about species? Although I do see the difference and that big male looks stunning! Purple is the color of royalty and if you don't have a name yet, then maybe name him Royal or Prince after the late singer who sang purple rain. Purple was his fav 💜 color too!

    Petko If I wanted to get you a species you don't have how would I go about doing that? I've been watching your channel for years. You got me over my fear of Tarantulas and now I own a numerous amount of them. I checked out your webpage only to notice there was one species in particular that was missing from your collection. One that is a dream Tarantula of mine and one I feel everyone should have in their collection. That species being Harpactira pulchripes. People please thumbs up this so he can see.

    The second one is without doubt machalla. The female is SA machalla. The larger male is Pamphobeteus, might be machalla or platyomma.Hope this helps!

  • Technoraptor 777
    Technoraptor 7778 miesięcy temu

    Also a female platyomma would be a more brown color overall also bigger with nice pink eye markings. So the female and smaller darker guy are the same species for sure...the second dude is definitely a platyomma.
