Found in the wild. (Flagstaff, AZ)

I found her under an irrigation box, looks like a Rose but unless someone let her go, I kind of doubt finding one in the Arizona in the wild.
I'm thinking Aphonopelma marxi too... Out of the known Aphonopelma recorded in that area, this is the closest in appearance.

@Phormic28 Hobby Aphonopelma sp. "Flagstaff" is Aphonopelma chalcodes. Although found in that area, I just don't see the resemblance.
 
Thanks for the responses, I'm thinking A. marxi in need of a molt like @jezzy607 said. She doesn't have segmented legs like the Flagstaff Orange. But definitely not as dark as any other Grand Canyon Black I've seen up here.
 
Yes, the marxi I had were quite brown like the one you found when nearing a molt. Post molt they are the typical black with red abdomen Google images will depict.
