• Tapinauchenius Gigas - Red Tree Tarantula

Common Name:Red Tree Tarantula
Scientific Name: Tapinauchenius gigas

Status: Captive Bred  

Country of origin - French Guiana, South America
Habitat: Tree dwelling
Suitability: Not for beginners, fast moving.

My Opinion:
A beautiful 'fluffy' tarantula, the red colour is so vibrant. They are fast moving like most tree dwelling species but don't tend to be overly aggressive. Not a huge species but certainly one that I would recommend as part of a varied tarantula collection. I actually love all Tapinauchenius species, I don't know why they are not more popular, I think they are really underrated!

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

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.
