Hey guys

i was out and about again today hunting but this time for spiders not scorpions Wink found 5 nice spiders (will post photos when i get the chance) but i have a question about one in particular. This spider from what i have seen and to my knowledge looks exactly like a tiny ( 2 / 2.5 cm) tarantula!!! is this a dwarf tarantula species? could i have found a tarantula? we have them here? i didnt imagine we did but anythings possible Very Happy or is this some really common spider that is everywhere that looks this way just im ignorant? hehe sorry i dont have photos i will get some up tomorrow.

Thanks guys
Umar

Dwarf tarantulas are cool, but I have no idea where the various species live.

Hmm, according to Wikipedia, they're restricted to the Americas. Tarantulas in general are supposed to live in Morocco, so it's possible you saw an immature specimen.

I don't doubt that there's smaller species in the family Theraphosidae -- the article only talked about a different family of mygalamorphs.

i dont think this is a immature one he looks exactly like the pictures i see of fully grown tarantulas except he is just over 2 cm in length and he does not resemble the "slings" ive seen.
i will take photos this afternoon and post for you all to identify for me, either way dwarf T or immature T, its very very cool little guy Smile

That does look a lot like yours -- I don't know how big the adults are, but most tarantulas start looking a lot like adults even when quite small.
