• Phormictopus auratus - Giant Bronze Birdeating Tarantula

Common Name: Giant Bronze Birdeating Tarantula
Scientific Name: Phormictopus auratus

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Cuba/Central America
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Not overly aggressive but not to be handled

My Opinion:
A large, bulky, attractive spider. Not so common in the pet hobby these days. Tend to sit out in full view so they make a good display animal but I would not recommend picking them up.

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

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.
