Possible Young Blonde or Hualapi Tarantula in N. Arizona? - Aphonopelma chalcodes

Possible Young Blonde or Hualapi Tarantula in N. Arizona? - Aphonopelma chalcodes
North of Kingman - Rocky Hillside, Mohave County, Arizona, USA
January 24, 2014
This is the second of these small spiders I have found against our house (one under some wood and this one under a plant we had to move). Someone once told me they were "Hualapai Dwarf Tarantula's" but, I am wondering if they might be juvenile Blond Tarantula's instead? I have been here 8 months and never seen a full sized tarantula anywhere. These guys are VERY docile. The one image was taken with a flash, and his hairs look blonder than the one where I was moving him to a new tree (with rocks and mulch similar to his last home) in my hand. But, it is the same spider in the two photos.
