Tarantula gets a name

I get excited when someone ventures forth with a name for some varmint or plant that I've presented on my Tropical Biodiversity blog. Such is the case with the tarantula presented this past Sunday. Lony writes: "This looks like it belongs to the Acanthoscurria family of tarantulas. Acanthoscurria brocklehursti to be exact. This most likely was a male. They do wonder around and are looking for females to mate. It is mating season right now." See the full comment on my post of 16 September, 2007. Thanks Lony.
