Tuesday 16th July - I will be going on holiday in early August so you will find lots of bargains on the website at this time.

I need to clear some stock before I go, I can't leave the family looking after such a huge number of animals!!

Some of the "Super Specials" this week: Tubs of Hissing cockroaches, Cave crickets, Ethiopian crickets, Huntsman spiders!

  • Lasiodora Parahybana - Salmon Pink Birdeating Tarantula

Common Name:Salmon Pink Birdeating Tarantula
Scientific Name: Lasiodora parahybana

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Brazil
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Generally quite calm, but very big

My Opinion:
My favourite 'giant' tarantula. These spiders grow huge, they are very furry and pretty and so much nicer than other giant species like the Goliath Birdeater (in my opinion). They start off as tiny spiderlings and over several years reach huge proportions. They tend to sit out in the open where they can be seen and are always eager to feed. I wouldn't want to pick one up (although I know people who do handle them), they don't seem overly aggressive, just a little jumpy.   

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

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.
