Description

This fairly large Theraphosid was resting (facing downward) on a metal post near the Hotel Axkan. Total body length about 2.5 to 3 cm, total length maybe 8-9 cm. I can't find any similar images of tarantulas on iNat in Mexico. The pink-banding on the legs and pink spots on the abdomen are distinctive. I'm wondering if this is a juvenile.

The larger species are sometimes seen far outside their native ranges in shipments of fruits, when frequently confused with Phoneutria spiders. However, unlike the dangerously venomous Phoneutria, bites from Cupiennius typically...
