• Grammostola rosea - Chile Rose Tarantula

Common Name: Chile Rose Tarantula
Scientific Name: Grammostola rosea

Status : Captive Bred

Country of origin - Chile, South America
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: A favourite beginners tarantula, docile, large and long lived

My Opinion:
The Chile Rose is probably second only to the Mexican Red Knee as Britain's favourite pet tarantula. They are generally docile and can often be seen being handled in animal demonstrations. They are readily available and a less expensive alternative to the Red Knee . The down side is that the adults are mostly imported from the wild.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

If you would like me to measure the body length of any medium or large spider, please send me an email. I cannot measure the body length of small and juvenile size spiders as they are constantly changing.

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
