Wondering what species this is – common and latin name
Chira Island, Costa Rica

Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula

Dear David,
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.
