Nice T to find as an adult. They really are a beautiful tarantula.

Beautiful critter. How big is it now? :)

Also, you'll probably want to move it off the rocks and bark. That doesn't look very comfy to me. :(

Yes, is wild caught, by someone else, not me :) I live in Caracas (center of the country) and this T is from the northwest (desert area).

Going by body conformation, I would say it appears female. If you want to give us the ability to give a more accurate idea than that hunch you need to get a good quality picture of the bottom of the abdomen in the region between the first set of booklungs.

Alternatively, you can examine the interior of that same region on the shed skin and look for the spermatecae.

Some older threads to give you an idea of what I'm talking about:

Very nice T and it does look a female to me also... And a nice plump one at that. Who knows you might find her making an eggsac for you in the future. Congrats
