    eeehhh.....i doubt it. there are a few scattered species in california but i beleive thats as far north as they go. i think tarantulas native to california are a rarity itself. but then again, im not so sure.....

    I think the Bay area is the farthest north you can find them. I believe, but I might be wrong, that it's Aphonopelma califoricum (might be an invalid species name).
    You can't find any Ts in Oregon, unfortunately....

    Ts in Oregon

    Nope,.... Sorry, too far north. Coolest spiders youll have up there are Argiopes, the yellow and black ones with the orb web in your garden.

    So I have read the other threads. I live on the central Oregon coast about 25 miles inland and just two weeks ago a tarantula went across my path. So makes me think there are some a little further north then being suggested. Just saying

    I found a python in the woods of WI....doesnt mean there are pythons in WI.

    No ts in Oregon unless someone lets one go there.

    Now Sasquatch on the other hand....
