Wondering what species this is – common and latin name
Chira Island, Costa Rica
We quickly found a matching photo identified as a Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula, Aphonopelma seemanni, on the Tarantula Photo Gallery website. The Tarantula’s Burrow website has a care sheet on the species. Arachnopets indicates an alternate name is the Stripe Knee Tarantula.
