So looks like a P. metalica to me. I know its dark but there is still a lot of blue and it looks like the patern matches.

i know i would prefer a DCF over a regular metallica
are they harder to come by than a reg?

Hi,
some people suppose, that the dark colour is a sign of "old age"...

Looks like a P. metallica to me. I think Rick West has pictures of both the blue and the black/dark P. metallica on his website.

We will see in a couple of days some adult female P metallicas
"rare Black form" or something like that for some ridiculous prices.
I would bet money on this.

In my opinion P. metallica are not as blue when they get older. They prob are the most striking blue when they are about 4 inches.

Mine is the dark color variety. I will post a pic tomorrow. It was born in 2004. I think I would have prefered a more striking blue one.

Sorry, I've been super busy. It was real dark but now a took another look at it and only the back half is really dark. OK now I wil seriously try to get a pic up tomorrow night. No joke.

OK, here she is. Keep in mind that this is without a flash. But also, the flash really doesn't make much of a diference. I did mate her last month. I wonder if the dark abdomen could be the result of gravidity.

i wouldnt go as far as to say i dont care, they are both magnificent beasts...but i (being a metal head and having that "black is the new black" personality) love black T's...someday i will own a black form metallica as well as a Lampropelma nigerrimum. G. pulchra although another ubber black T i hate waiting for them to grow up lmao so ill end up probably spending a lot of money for a sub adult.

Hey Ana , Nice spider. Did you raise that spider from a s'ling ? Do you have any pics of it when it was younger ? Did you use a flash in those pics ?





OK, here she is. Keep in mind that this is without a flash. But also, the flash really doesn't make much of a diference. I did mate her last month. I wonder if the dark abdomen could be the result of gravidity.

Hey Joe, you dont think the flash of a camera would bring out more color ?:? Can you get one with a flash to compare ? I agree that she looks pretty fat though. Good luck with a sac !.

Simply put: I love these guys both regular and black form (although I might love the black form just a little more ).

I just don't have a thing for VIBRANT blue things, whether it's a T or not lol
I like H. lividum, because the blue is milder and it fades into a really pretty light blue/grey on the T... but P. metallica just does not do it for me.

I love black, too.. always have. Black horses, black dogs, black anything... I got a G. pulchra sling, and I'll probably die of old age before it matures :wall:

If there is such a thing......:? I don't know enough about the species.......
......Just learnin' about pokies.

I hear alot of conflicting reports concerning Rosehair variability........This thread could go-on-forever with these talks.......

Seems to me, that Red Concepcion varieties grow-up Red.
I'll find out in a few years {yearlings} for myself.

P. Metallicas, are indeed, Striking :eek::drool:

I have seen some Beautiful Pix on this site......I prefer them as blue as can be........There is a T color/hue, for us All.

Is anyone familiar with a Purplish Pokie ?........I thought I heard somethin' to the Effect, that, There are some other lesser-known Beautiful Ornamentals.
Curious again..............Jason

Think I would rather have the blue for the price they go for. It's a pretty tarantula, though.
