possibly a Grammostola rosea

Possibly a Grammostola rosea? Got it from a pet store as “unknown spider. No sex, age, etc. It was given to them because the prior owner no longer wanted it. They refused to feed or water it for some time. We think it’s Grammostola rosea. What does the community think?
Grammostola porteri is my guess. Definitely needs to be rehoused into something more suitable for this species. Good job saving her. :)
 
We thought that too. I’ll get a better picture soon. As for the terrarium it’s a great size for it now. The setup it was in was not good. It is very comfortable in the 8x8x8 terrarium. It looks to be a juvenile and is now moving around much better. Once it molts and gets a little bigger, we will move it to its final home. You can’t see but it’s missing a tarsus, so at this time we want it to just feel comfortable for now.
