Lasiodora klugi (Bahai Scarlet Birdeater)

New World Terrestrial Tarantula

Beginner T

 

Comments: 

  • It has dark red hairs on its abdomen and is has a heavier and thicker build than the L. parahybana

  • This is an aggressive eating T.

Temp/humidity:

  • 23°-27°C degrees and humidity at 65%-75%  

Enclosure: 

  • As a spiderling, use a vial that would allow at least 7cm of substrate for burrowing. As sub-adult-adult use a terrarium that will allow at least 10cm of substrate.

Retreat/Hide: 

  • Place a bark for a starter burrow hide 

Food Consumption:

  • Feed slings twice a week.

  • Feed adults once a week.

  • Food size should be the size of the carapace. 

Water Requirements: 

  • Keep a water dish in the tank.

  • Dampen one-half of the substrate in the terrarium by overflowing the water dish, than I allow it to dry out.

Growth Rate: 

  • The growth rate for this species is medium-fast. 

  • Adult leg span of 19cm

Temperament: 

  • This is a bold tarantula, but not aggressive as an adult.

  • It may use a defensive pose, but would rather retreat than stand and fight.
