This quick growing spider is one of the largest tarantulas in the world! This massive species commonly reaches a legspan of 11 inches and easily reaches 4 inches in the first year. These spiders originate in Northeastern Brazil, where they inhabit the forest floor. They are generally laid back and stay out in the open, making them an ideal display species when combined with their large size. This species will do best with temperatures in the mid 70s to 80s and humidity in the 60-70% range. They are largely terrestrial, and will take shelter with a hide such as a piece of cork bark. These spiders are typically peaceful and can often be handled, but will flick urticating hairs or bite when threatened. This giant tarantula is a must own for any enthusiast!
