Bought this gal off Craigslist about a month ago. Was told she was a Chilian Rose Hair. But even after feedings, shes still kind of aggressive? While cleaning her tank, she came out of hiding and reared up her front legs as to pounce. What do you think?
Looks to be a Grammostola porteri (Common name "Rose Hair"). All tarantulas have varying temperaments, so in this case you may have a more defensive individual. All tarantula species are capable of feeling threatened, and will threat pose as a result.
 
I agree that it looks like the average G. porteri. Personalities differ, from spider to spider, and sometimes even from molt to molt.

Out of curiosity, is that how it's currently being kept?
