Large Nevada Tarantula
Aphonopelma bugii


large Nevada tarantula
My brother and sister-in-law found this large tarantula in Dayton, Nevada. Rumor has it that it
 has been seen attacking
slow-moving RV's.  This species has not, as yet, been spotted in Utah,
although I do have a picture of a little smaller one in St. George attacking a woman who wanted
 to see if the spider was real.  Tourist!  (Photo to be posted at a later date). © Marilyn Davis
