My brother gave me his tarantula because he didn’t want her anymore and I don’t know what species she is, can anyone tell me? She’s in premolt I’m pretty sure so her colours are more muted than usual.

Its rather hard to tell from that angle, but that looks to be an N. Chromatus, a better picture would help a lot though!
I know this photo isn’t the best either but this was her in the tub she came to me in, it’s a better angle.

First glance at thumbnail I was thinking Acanthoscurria geniculata, but up close I think maybe Nhandu coloratovillus? Chromatus also a possibility. Generally you want to see the body colour, the hair colour of the hair extending from the body and legs, and a look at the bands on the legs where possible.

I will say make sure to handle anything from their enclosure with gloves or tongs, as Nhandu species can have some irritating hair!
