Some nice looking spiders there Dude, like the colors of the one on your hand. Too bad they give me the creeps...

The colors on those are awesome. My favourite is the first photograph, she is as beautiful as the photo is artistic. :)

A. bicoloratum, mature female is really nice looking, but you'd never catch me with it on my hand LOL I think tarantulas ect are cool, but I have no interest in touching them lol

She's a big pussy cat and wouldn't hurt a fly. A cricket yes but not a fly.

I'm sure I could cure all the arachnophobes out there if given a chance.

Hmmm, let's see, we'll need a dark room and a bottle of tequila! :D:D

I agree with ABG, that A. bicoloratum is really nice!

I'm assuming this thread is open game for anybodies T pics... if not, sorry for hijacking your thread! I just thought the more the merrier :p

Here's Julie's (guitarlixx) B. smithi: (I believe I have the name right but it has been awhile)

sorry about the picture quality. lol
it was done through the plastic (as you can tell from the reflection of the room), holding my camera phone in my left hand while trying to aim a flashlight for the "flash" with my right hand... it was pretty tricky

I"m still trying to learn the invert latin, could you guys use both latin and common names when posting pictures? Thanks a lot :)

The B. smithi was a Red Knee. Mexican red knee if i'm not mistaken, but I could definitely be wrong on that one.

Sorry Ian I'll try to use common names but they are so misleading. Different names in different places all for the same critter. Latin names are the same everywhere. Also there are so many inverts that very many of them just don't have common names.
