Texas Brown Tarantula
My wife saw this Texas Brown Tarantula crossing the road by our house and stopped to show our children. We later placed it in our garden and took these photos.

Hi Jeffrey,
Thanks for sending us your wonderful image of a Texas Brown Tarantula, Aphonopelma hentzi. Also thanks for rescuing the hapless creature from becoming road kill.
