Costa Rica, Nov. 2010 161.JPG

Found right next to a river in Costa Rica.
UPDATE: I believe this to be Aphonopelma crinirufum (Costa Rican Bluefront Tarantula) but I am not 100% sure.
reminds me a little of a Pamphobeteus species but i am not sure, i have never heard of any Pamphobeteus from Costa Rica ether
 
Yes, looks like Aphonopelma crinirufum!
Mine, same size:
 
@Mister Sunshine
Where do you found it? More on the atlantic side in the north?

@8 legged
I dont think so.
Most of the crinirufum (and burica too) in the hobby differs clearly from crinirufum (sensu Valerio; see HERE)
Further the carapace is not so broad and rounded like on the Theraphosinae on the picture above.
