Rodger has inspired me to expand my tropical shopping list. This is the Antilles Pinktoe tarantula, a species endemic to the Lesser Antilles. This photo is from the National Zoo's web site. Typically the abdomen and legs of this species are redder. They are quite beautiful and I would really love to see one.
Hugs to UrSpo.
Update: Now that I've had my fun with Spo, I'll give one bit on additional info. Although this species is endemic to the Lesser Antilles, its endemism is actually much narrower than that. It's found only on the island of Martinique. As we will not be stopping at that island on this trip, neither I nor Spo stand much of a chance of actually encountering one. I'm sure that I have now made myself the target for some sort of retaliatory action in the upcoming week.
