This tarantula was a surprise siting Friday while hiking at about 4,000 feet on the Hutch’s Pools trail — that’s February 1st folks, not a likely time to see a tarantula since they live underground and prefer the warm summer nights when they spend time hunting.

For what it’s worth, my take on this guy is that it’s a young male (females a usually stockier and more brown) that is too horny to know that most females are not going to be out this time of year, especially in the daytime.

Let me know what you think!
