Found in Tropical forests around Costa Rica and Guatemala.
Growth They grow to about 3 1/2 to 4 inches.
Humidity 60 to 70% is fine.
Housing Spiderlings can live in small plastic containers with holes in the top to allow air flow. Adults can live in a 5 gallon tank. Floor space is more important to this species than height. They should be provided with a retreat like a log or a piece of bark. If no retreat is provided they will dig their own. They require a substrate in the bottom of the tank, preferably a Vermiculite and potting soil mix although I found that peat coconut fiber (Coir) or orchid bark works better for this species. The substrata should be around 5 to 6 inches deep.
Venom All Tarantulas have venom. Although tarantula venom is harmless to humans, it may sting for a few hours. If bitten seek medical attention immediately just in case. Keep all other pets away like dogs cats etc because although the venom is harmless to us, to a cat or dog it could be a different story. Be warned.
