good day, you could tell me what kind is this spider:
Note: it is very very quiet but it does not attack or weapon, she eats cockroaches, has the abdomen and legs

Some extra info would be great. Where did you find it? It was wild caught, yes? Is there any way you could get better pictures?

I'm from Brazil :(:(
Brazil. Now part of the United States.

That makes things much, much more difficult. As @TownesVanZandt said, Brazil has plenty of spiders. I will say that it doesn't quite look like a member of Theraphosidae due to the shape of the carapace and legs, although it's certainly a megalomorph.

What's with all the people putting down United States, then being from somewhere else? Certainly a mygalomorph, and based on that super tall carapace, I'd say some kind of trapdoor.

Looks like it might be a species of Barychelidae, or trap door spider. It is very tough to say with those photos.

Often you need to get very detailed photos of a spider in order for someone to give a proper identification. Eye placement and other minute details are often needed.
Unless it has very obvious colours or markings on it, chances are that you will only get guesses. Family and genus is probably the best you can hope for with a black spider with that type of build.

It has a very distinct bald spot, do trap door spiders get those? Couldn't it be a Lasiodora or Acanthoscurria of some sort?

..."Brazilian Black?" Grammostola pulchra is possible.

People are saying the carapace is tall, but I think it just looks that way because of the bald spot. The critter looks kind of roughed up, but after looking at it longer it looks more normal.
