This species of spider is quite a beautiful one. With nice black and red striped markings on its abdomen and a red carapace. These spiders are fast growing and long lived. These spiders although will burrow like to be out in the open a lot so make great display pets.They grow to about 3 1/2 to 4 inches. They like to kick urticating hairs. Spiderlings can live in small plastic containers with holes in the top to allow air flow. Adults can live in a 5 gallon tank. Floor space is more important to this species than height. They should be provided with a retreat like a log or a piece of bark If no retreat is provided they will dig their own. They require a substrata in the bottom of the tank, preferably a Vermiculite and potting soil mix. The substrata should be around 5 to 6 inches deep. Spiderlings will eat pinhead crickets and other small insects. Adults will eat crickets, locust, meal worms and other insects. All Tarantulas have venom. Although tarantula venom is harmless to humans, it may sting for a few hours. If bitten seek medical attention immediately just in case. Keep all other pets away like dogs cats etc because although the venom is harmless to us, to a cat or dog it could be a different story. Be warned. This species flicks urticating hairs so don't get it too close to your eyes. Their hairs can also cause an allergic reaction with people who have sensitive skin.
