• Nhandu Chromatus - Brazil Striped Tarantula

Common Name: Brazil Striped Tarantula
Scientific Name: Nhandu chromatus (formerly known as Lasiodora christata)

Status : Captive Bred

Country of origin - Brazil
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Very pretty but can be a little skittish

My Opinion:
A popular pet tarantula, stunningly pretty and easy to keep. The spiderlings are tiny when first hatched but are very easy to rear and soon grow to be beautiful, brightly coloured spiders. They can be a little jumpy but they are lovely and another of my favourites.

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

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.
