My friend got this tarantula at Petco with no label of any kind. I think it's an Aphonopelma. I have no clue as to the species. What do you all think?
Well that's what I thought before she molted, because she was more on the brown side. This picture is shortly after her molt, and her color changed drastically, so I really wasn't sure...
 
That looks like a rather dark specimen of Aphonopelma Atomicum. Could be A. Henzi are much lighter, with more of a brown than the "grey" appearance.
 
My reason for ruling out A. Hentzi is because A. Hentzi is usually in the browns as opposed to the grays, unless this is an inordinately dark specimen.
