• Pamphobeteus antinous - Giant Black Birdeating Tarantula

Common Name: Giant Black Birdeating Tarantula
Scientific Name: Pamphobeteus antinous

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - South America
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: Not suitable for absolute beginners

My Opinion:
A true giant and a very impressive tarantula to keep. I certainly wouldn't recommend handling them but they are generally fairly laid back and easy to keep. They tend to sit out in the open and make a good display animal. They can be faster moving and skittish as youngsters but become more mellow with age. 

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.
