Description

This is truly one beautiful tarantula. They grow to a decent size, are easy to care for, and are not usually too aggressive. They can reach adulthood in 2-3 years, so growth rate is good when housed and fed properly. No collection is complete without one of these beauties.

 

The common name, Brazilian Black and White, is actually a bit deceptive as the colouration is usually a reddish brown and cream colour. These are a large terrestrial tarantula that can grow up to around 16cm in size. Although their legspan is a bit smaller than some of the bigger birdeaters, their stocky builds and fur-like hairs give them an impressive appearance. Although classified as terrestrial, as with most terrestrial spiders they will often inhabit burrows and crevices under rocks and trees. Slings do often tend to burrow if given enough substrate.
