    Bringing up this thread from the dead.

    I caught this girl about half an hour from where I live. They are near a business friend of my fathers property, with burrows dug into the sides of the road. They are pretty common around here but of course are getting eaten up by urban sprawl.

    Its an Aphonopelma. I doubt I will ever be able to get a certain ID as taxonomy is a mess. I think it would be properly referred to as Aphonopelma eutylenum, but this is being considered for revision. Great little gal. Can't let the more known A. chalcodes, hentzi etc. take all the credit.

    She's real calm and gentle though she's the only large tarantula I've ever held...hehe, so I wouldn't know. I've only seen her bite once and that was when I was trying to get her out of the starbucks frappucino jar I kept her in on the trip home by tickling her belly with a piece of cardboard. She does kick hairs every once if disturbed too much but getting her onto my hand for this photo was not hard at all.

    I'm in the process of raising a few, and as far as handling I've read a bit and have "common bug sense".

    I have yet to measure her, but most pet store roseas are about the same size as she.
