Yes, it seems like a 'Costa Rican Zebra' (Aphonopelma seemanni). She/he just need to molt!

How exactly do you know its a female? I'm pretty sure males look like that till their maturing molt.


Here is the give away for this species: the orange spinnerets.

These guys also tend to be brown until about the 3-4" mark when they tend to become a deeper black/dark blue-ish color. But the tan underside and spinnerettes is always a clue.
