I went up City Creek Canyon today on my electric scooter, and on the way down, I saw a Brown Tarantula (Aphonopelma iodius) crossing the road. I also saw one the other night when I was coming down city creek canyon, but I didn't get a good look at it because it was dark out. Here are some pictures of the one I saw today.

Yeah, but it was real, several people had stopped to take pictures of it.
Here is the video I took of it:

That's odd, I tried to import it from Google Photos to YouTube. I'll try re-uploading it.

Edit: I re-uploaded it, and now it's working. I edited my previous post.

I read that the Tarantulas come out in the fall, the first time I saw one was in August, when I first posted this thread.
