My best advice, do not handle this one!!!!!!! If you need to rehouse it or clean the tank, use a cup to move her around. Put the cup on top of it then slowly slide a lid under it to take her out. Put gloves on as everything in the enclosure will have urticating hairs on it (you won't see them). The Theraphosa species has the worst urticating hairs, the blondi hairs being second only to the aphosysis and they do not hesitate to flick some at will, especially smaller ones (my big girl will put on a threat posture that makes you consider signing a will). I love both my blondi and aphosysis, they are some of my favorite Ts but the very last ones I would try to handle. Break a leg!
Like @Arachnoclown we all learnt the hard way
Keep in mind that the hairs are almost invisible and will easily fly all over the place. If you consider getting near your T and take it out of its enclosure, remove all draft or fans from the room and keep your eyes and nose as far as you can from the beast
