Description:

This strikingly patterned spider is a great choice for any hobbyist looking to get more into fast, arboreal species. These spiders originate in Venezuela, and will reach 6 inches as jet black and orange striped adults. This species will do best in an enclosure that prioritizes vertical space over horizontal space, as they are avid climbers as adults. As spiderlings, they will burrow as well. They will thrive in temperatures in the mid 70s to 80s, and humidity in the 70-80% range. This species is quite fast, and while not particularly toxic, does have a painful bite and should not be handled. This fascinating tarantula will be a great choice for anyone looking for something a bit more exciting.
