My dad saved this tarantula from a parking lot at his local Safeway. He lives in northern Arizona, and has seen many tarantulas like this throughout his life, but never knew the species. We know it's a male, but not much else.
I picked up this Aphonopelma saguaro sling from Jurassic Pet Supplies a few weeks back at the Reptile Super Show in Pomona. I love the Aphonopelma genus and dwarf Ts, so this was an interesting find. I’d never heard of it before.
I only see a few tags on iNaturalist. Anyone know about these?
