Wow great finds! How did you manage to get that Hapopelma spp. out without breaking it's burrow. Flood, luring?

Isent it a Haplopelma sp., I thought maybe it was a Haplopelma (possible minax)!?

If it is a Ornithoctoninae, do you know which species?

I took the pictures at night time, so the tarantula was resting outside its burrow:)

I also saw many smaller specimens, but it was very hard to finde the adults,and I only saw to adult burrows during the hole trip(to weeks)

cheers

Hello Ornata ,

The spider is most likely Ornithoctonus aureotibialis . It's the most common species of tarantula in that area . Very nice pictures !

I asked Rick West before my trip, and he told me that it was possible to finde haplopelma in that area, but when i google Ornithoctonus aureotibialis, it seems to me that you are right:)

Thanks
