Mexican Golden Red Rump Tarantula (Brachypelma Albiceps)

I have reared this lovely tarantula from a very small sling, waiting patiently for it to mature for my photography. Even as a large juvenile it is a very calm spider to hold and usually on show even though it has a retreat provided. So I am hoping it will make a nice display spider when it has matured. It is a popular spider with terrarium enthusiasts although not always available and sells out fast. Like other brachypelma species in my collection, it does not disappoint, becoming more beautiful after each moult. The Carapace is a light golden colour with a black abdomen covered with lovely red hairs and its legs are also black, making it a very attractive spider, looking forward to filming it as an adult.
