• Pamphobeteus machala - Purple Starburst Birdeating Tarantula

Common Name: Purple Starburst Birdeating Tarantula
Scientific Name: Pamphobeteus machala

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Ecuador
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Not for beginners / Very large

My Opinion:
These spiders are beautiful, I am a little biased as purple is my favourite colour! They are huge, 'furry' tarantulas and generally sit out on show. Their colours are amazing, especially the adult males which are vivid purple, the female's colour is a little more subdued. 

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

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!)

I am happy to send a photo of any medium or large size spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
