The images on this website are merely a small cross-section of the species
and images found in Rick West's photo collection. Viewers are welcome to
use this website as an identification tool, however, viewers must realize
that although many tarantulas are colour/pattern specific, identifications
can never be positively made from images alone. Additionally, although Rick
West keeps up with taxonomic changes scientific names change constantly and
may not always be immediately reflected on this website.
