Aphonopelma sp.

Comments
Tarantulas are the largest of all spiders and 30 species are known to live in Arizona. Adults range in size from 2-4 inches. Typically, tarantulas of all species are light to dark brown in color and the abdomen and legs are densely covered with hair. Tarantulas possess fangs and are venomous, but they do not bite unless seriously provoked. There are no records of serious harm to humans resulting from tarantula bites. Female tarantulas may live as long as 35 years and males are shorter-lived. After 8-10 years, male tarantulas migrate in search of mates between June and October. Urticating hairs can cause irritation. Source: AZ Cooperative Extension, Yavapai County
