Theraphosa apophysis will grow to be similar in size to Theraphosa blondi (some enthusiasts indicate that it will grow to be larger), and is similar in appearance except for a subtle pink shading at the end of each leg. The color is far more pronounced as a hatchling, and will fade as it molts.
Theraphosa apophysis is considered to be a difficult tarantula to care for and maintain, and is therefore not recommended for beginners.
