Lasiodora parahybana (Brazilian Salmon Pink)

New World Terrestrial Tarantula

Great beginner species

 

Comments: 

  • This is an aggressive eating T.

  • If you would like a huge tarantula that is easy to care for, and is hardy, this is the species for you.

  • It is a good display spider.

  • This is a must have species.

Temp/humidity: 

  • Ideal temperature between 23°C and 27°C and humidity between 65%-75%. 

  • As sling wet one half side of the terrarium where the water dish is then allow it to dry out completely. Dry substrate for juvies and older.

Enclosure: 

  • As a spiderling use least 7cm for burrowing.

  • As sub-adult-adult use 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. 

  • Leg span 25cm.

Temperament: 

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

  • It very seldom uses a defensive pose, but would rather retreat than stand and fight.
