All the images of captive specimens are likely to be Brachypelma hamorii, not Brachypelma smithi. Prior to a clarifying paper published in 2017, B. hamorii was regularly misidentified as B. smithi. Unfortunately the species cannot usually be separated based on characteristics visible in these images. See Mendoza, J. & Francke, O. (2017). "Systematic revision of Brachypelma red-kneed tarantulas (Araneae: Theraphosidae), and the use of DNA barcodes to assist in the identification and conservation of CITES-listed species". Invertebrate Systematics. 31 (2): 157–179.
