This is a tarantula, unsure of what kind exactly.

To me this looks like a Theraphosa stirmi :3

It looks like an Oklahoma brown, they’re one of the very few tarantulas we have in Colorado

This Tarantula is a Aphonopelma hentzi and with the presence of the tibial hooks is a mature male out looking for a lady- October is towards the end of the breeding period for this native USA species.
