Theraposidae family spider

Name: Spider, not sure of the name

Phylum: Arthropoda

Class: Arachnida

Order: Araneae

Family: Theraposidae

Location found: Pampas Argentina

Behaivor and description: This spider was found by a friend in Argentina, she was laying out on the sun on top of cement around 9 am probably in order to obtain the heat from it. I am not sure the which spider this is, I can confirm that the family is theraposidae, it shares many characteristics with members of that family such as the grammostola rosea, grammostola, grammostola mollicoma, theraposa blondi, and others.  I put this on the blog, because I have seen spiders with very similar characteristics in charlotte, and this family of spiders is widely spread across the globe.
