• Theraphosinae species Roatan - Roatan Island Purple Tarantula

Common Name: Roatan Island Purple Tarantula
Latin Name: Theraphosinae species Roatan

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Roatan Island / Honduras

Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Fast moving

My Opinion:
The Roatan Island Purple is a new species of tarantula, I gather they were only discovered in 2014 (that could be wrong, let me know if you have any positive information). They are a large, fast moving species and the adults are a dark colour with a magnificent purple hue.

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

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.
