My sister in law works at a local shelter, and this pretty lady was found abandoned in a Kritter Keeper in a local park. She is enormous.
Thing is, if I'm right about the species, she's actually worth a fair bit of money and I don't know why anyone would dump her instead of selling her. I'm going to post a picture of her on a tarantula forum as soon as I'm approved to join and confirm my suspicion about her species before I mention it here. Poor thing is very stressed out, and has scratched all the hair off of her abdomen. I'm hoping to get an answer about her species quickly so I can get a care sheet to the shelter to get her set up as well as possible.
I WISH I could bring her home and foster her here, but my husband would kill me. Then he would die. Then possibly kill me again for good measure.
