Cyclosternum fasciatum, commonly known as Costa Rican Tiger Rump, is a species of a new-world tarantula native to Costa Rica and Guatemala. This is a terrestrial species with a maximum legspan of 12 centimetres (4.7 in), which makes it a rather small tarantula species, yet it is one of the largest of its genus.    


As pets they may be kept in terrariums. They require a 10gallon to 15gallon (adults) and juveniles in critter keepers or deli cups. Substrate should be 4 to 6 inches of a mixture of vermiculate and peat moss. 


Generally, in captivity, C. fasciatum feed upon a variety of pesticide-free insects such as locusts, crickets and cockroaches. Spiderlings can be fed small 'pinhead' crickets, or scavenge the bodies of pre-killed crickets.
