She's gorgeous!
I have a G.rosea as well
She was red phase like yours, but went gray phase after her last moult.

Wow! She's one good looking spid!
Do you know what my T is? (common name)
post #6 of 17
Yes, Chilean Rose ( Not to be confused with the Rosehair).
Does she have a name?

I named mine Lloth after the spider queen in Salvatore's dark elf books.

She's called Bernadette, but she isn't a chilean rose (she does look like one now you mention it though, and if you knew how big she was...)
She's a brazilian salmon pink (lasiodora parahybana).

LOL she picked up the red coloring from the substrate, I thought you had posted pics of your rose
I've never seen the salmon pink except in books.
Never even seen one in the petstores and I've seen some pretty rare Ts

They are quite rare, more common here in the uk though.
They look very similar, plus the pic was fuzzy.
She's about 9 inches long now.

So she's one of the bird eating species.
Do you feed her mice, or bugs?

I love the bird eaters, but I'm terrified of spiders and they are just a bit too big for me

Too big for me
I'm actually terrified of spiders, but I do think they are pretty.
I chose the G. Rosea because the are so calm.

I do hope to get Pink Toe eventually, asnd collect a Rio Grand Gold here locally within the next few years.

Pink toes are very jumpy, I had one a few months back.
I feed Rosy my G rosea on medium crickets and Bernadette on heart and liver, and occasionally locusts.
If your planning on another T I'd suggest a Chromatopelma Cyanopubescens (green bottle blue) or a Brachypelma Smithi (mexican red knee).

For me, it'll really depend on what I can find that's bred locally as I won't buy live animals from the petstore, nor will I risk having spiderlings shipped.

I got lucky on my Rosea as she was already an adult, but free.
She's only 3 years old, so not too bad a deal.

There are lots of fairly pretty native species I can collect locally as well
