This large male Texas Brown Tarantula was found in my mother’s garage in north Carrollton. The included photographs are intended to provide examples of the spider’s anatomical features, coloration, and size.
Although encountering a spider of this size can certainly be unnerving, we found this specimen to slow moving and non-aggressive. When any awareness of our presence was demonstrated by this tarantula, he responded only by making an effort to retreat, and never threatened to attack in any way.
