It's most definitely a Tarantula, at the size it could be a LOT of different species, thus making it impossible to ID... Sorry

The biggest thing you can live life for, is to live it for something that will outlast it.

Your next molt will show. The red knees will begin to show.

ME TOO!

:ohmy:

Do you have any idea what it took to write the d**n thing? As a group, tarantulas are very confusing. They violate all the rules and don't resemble anything else we've ever encountered before. I've been studying them for almost half a century and am still learning new things about them almost every day.

Welcome to a fascinating, probably endless hobby.

BTW, I am now working on the fourth edition of the Guide . If any of you have any specific, constructive criticisms about the current book, now's a great opportunity to help make it better. Either post comments here, or send me private E-mails. My E-mail addy is in my sig, below.

We need to learn to view the world from the perspective of a large, fuzzy spider!

Don't worry Willa, Uncle Stan didn't take offence. Yes it's all too much information, but the Tarantula keeper's guide is a very good place to start. As you grow in the hobby, you will understand more of the stuff in the book. Also don't be weary to post questions on this forum. Lot's of enthusiasts here will gladly share information and advise. We are all still learning and keen to hear and learn from each other.
