I too am in Nevada, but in the Las Vegas area. There are many tarantulas in this region but they are not colorfully impressive and exotic. Most you will see if any-- will be males wandering. Aphonopelma males are famous for this in large numbers around this area. I have caught a few wandering across golf courses and even crossing the south strip. Christmas Tree Pass I believe has the largest number of them I have ever seen at one time. Our state is quite large so this info may not be what you had in mind. Let us know what you find and watch out for rattlers!!
