been a while since I posted anything, the season is over for me.
This is a spider from my captive groups. Some of you might find this interesting.
It is a gynandromorph Poecilotheria subfusca, meaning that it is half male and half female.
The purple buttom part is the male half, it is now sexually mature (you do not see the male palp well on this picture).
The upper half is the female part.
I hope you find this interesting. My wife discovered this specimen a while back finding it was looking weird (when the specimen is immature, it is not that striking, you have to pay attention), I was really excited when I seen it knowing it was a gynandromorph specimen, my first ever. It is certainly not a common thing, but strangely, with tarantulas, most of the known occurances are within the Poecilotheria genus.
