What a picture with no id?;) What species is it? Did you take the picture, and was it a captive of yours?

Yeah it would be sweat if one could keep this species.

Yeah, it really is an awesome species. The chelicerae of some species can be easily over 1/3 the body length. Extremely powerful predator.
