I found this beautiful thing crossing the road to my ranch so I picked it up in a lizard habitat i happened to have in the car and it now lives in it. It is about 4-5 inches in diameter and is either sleeping or trying to escape. My ranch

Hi Miles,
Thanks for sending us your photo.  Are Tarantulas common around your ranch?

Hi, sorry for the late reply, the ranch is 5 miles from any road so the internet is terrible. So far I have seen 2, and the other was identical to the one in the picture. I have been told however by a pet store owner in that town that lots of tarantulas are common in my part of california.
