      He was working with Discovery, somebody like that.

      Rick was not just an adventurer, but also a very talented theraphosid taxonomist.

      I don't know what he's up to nowadays, though; that was some years back.

      Oh, and fwiw, T. blondi by weight is the largest species of tarantula known (or was at the time). A few others with larger legspan, though.
