I discovered this blue tarantula in my backyard this morning. I was having difficulties finding any information on it online. I’m located outside of San Antonio, Texas. The spider was around 3 inches long.

The only Tarantulas listed on BugGuide from Texas are in the genus Aphonopelma, and we did locate one image on BugGuide of Aphonopelma behlei that has a bluish cast, but not as extreme as your individual. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on Tarantulas will be able to provide additional information.
