The Brachypelma smithi (also called Mexican Red-kneed Tarantula), is a terrestrial tarantula native to the western faces of the Sierra Madre Occidental and Sierra Madre del Sur mountain ranges in Mexico. They are a large species, of which are a popular choice for enthusiasts. Like most Tarantulas, they are very long lived. - Wikipedia

The Real Thing
A tarântula ou caranguejeira é uma aranha da família Theraphosidae que se caracteriza por ter patas longas com duas garras na ponta, e corpo revestido de pelos. As tarântulas habitam as regiões temperadas e tropicais das Américas, Ásia, África e Oriente Médio.
Enquanto estão crescendo, têm uma fase de troca de pele chamada ecdise. Apesar do tamanho e aspecto sinistro, as tarântulas não são perigosas para a espécie humana, uma vez que não produzem toxinas nocivas aos humanos, por isso são eventualmente criadas como animais de estimação. Uma de suas defesas são os pêlos urticantes de suas costas e abdômen, que irritam a pele do possível predador. Em média atingem de 15 cm a 25 cm de comprimento com as pernas estendidas, mas existem espécies que podem chegar até 30 cm, como é o caso da tarântula-gigante-comedora-de-pássaros (Theraphosa blondi) da América do Sul. - Wikipedia

  1. I like many of the models that you present on your blog, but I don't understand if you put the link for eventual "free" downloads.
    When I go on the site you mention, it's very difficult to find the model that you show and know if a personal creation or a free one...
    Did you have done all the models that you present here?
    each time, they are very well done!

  2. Hello, Sam,

    All the models presented in the blog are free models. Sometimes they are freebies offered by a comercial site, but the model posted is a free model, always. my own models are just what you find in the tag "Exclusive" or "Papermau Original" on the right side of the blog, in the "Label" roll.
    Please, any question or model that you want, just tell me and I send to you by e-mail. Thank you for your visit and I gonna try be more especific about localization of the free models in the pages posted here. just remember: all the models posted here are "free to download, ever!"
    Greetings from Brazil!
