So, we have another unexpected visitor. I’ve been trying to use your site to send the pics (3) but it just sits and doesn’t seem to send.
Last night outside wall of the house I found what I think is a baby tarantula. It is approx 2″ and is missing one leg. Lived here all my life and have never seen one anywhere near here. My husband is thinking a bird or something got ahold of it and dropped it.
We are in agreement that this is a Tarantula, most likely Aphonopelma eutylenum based on images posted to BugGuide.
