HI Peterspiderling
im not 100% sure , but it looks like a Stripe-Knee Tarantula or Zebra-Leg Tarantula (Aphonopelma seemanni)
"Stripe-Knee Tarantula is a large Tarantula with a dark brown/black body and cream/white stripes on its legs"
i saw this on the site i buy my lings from...hope this helps

i forgot to mention that i think itas a salmon birdeater is because it behaves a bit like one. active and angry!

One way to be sure if it is a A. seemani is that it would have a pinkish underbelly and spinerrets. L parahybana has a lighter band around the carapace. If it was a smithi it would have the adult colors by now.

An. A. Seemani has orange spinneretts...
If it is not wild caught.. it won't have the wild caught fade...
Not an A. seemani...
Perhaps a pink zebra?

I suppose you should give more info.. what is the legspan(inches or centimeters)?.. how long it has been with you (years)?
