Aphonopelma chalcodes [ventral sexing]
Sold as Aphonopelma chalcodes. Diagonal leg span at rest might be three inches or close to that.
I haven’t had one of these before so I don’t want to speculate on sex, but I saw those fangs and to say, “wow”.

I am too afraid to hold mine like that. Afford to hurt them or get bit. After seeing your picture with fangs between your finger, that is my text book definition of, “Nope, hard pass”.
