Large brown trantula with a bit of reddish hair on her rear end.


This was a good sized Trantula. The ones I have run into are always calm. This one was very agressive. My son spotted for me while taking the pictures as she would charge! Has a nice set of fangs on her.

Not entirely sure. Possibly a Brown Tarantula?

Thankyou for your comment Phillip Torres! I would like to know if these are poisonous as I have them around the house all the time! I just scoot them off to the bushes.
