Thank you Bayucca

I am not 100% sure, but I think this is Metriopelma zebratum, Costa Rican Dwarf Tigerrump Tarantula or Costa Rican Suntiger Tarantula. Other candidate would be Cyclosternum fasciatum, which looks very similar, but is much larger. However, I have the impression that your Metriopelma zebratum is much larger than mine from the EOL link. Please, verify, perhaps with a local tarantula expert...
