• Grammostola pulchripes - Chaco Golden Knee Tarantula

Common Name: Chaco Golden Knee Tarantula
Scientific Name: Grammostola pulchripes (formerly G.aureostriata)

Status : Captive bred

Country of origin - Argentina (also Paraguay and Uruguay)
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Good for beginners

My Opinion:
A very large, attractive, docile tarantula. They are popular with beginners but often not as readily available as other starter tarantulas such as the Mexican Red Knee and Chile Rose. They were formally known as Grammostola aureostriata.


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.
