Scientific Name: Cyriocosmus perezmilesi
Common Names: Bolivian Dwarf Beauty
The Bolivian Dwarf Beauty is another dwarf tarantula species in the genus Cyriocosmus and just as cute as it’s cousin, Cyriocosmus elegans. This little Bolivian beauty has an adorable tiger pattern with an orange heart shaped bristle patch on it’s black velvety abdomen. Cyriocosmus perezmilesi is a docile species, and although it can be slightly twitchy and very quick when it does decide to run for cover, it’s generally bold enough to hang about when there is a disturbance in the enclosure.
As a fossorial species that like to burrow, they also web a lot above ground and are still very active and often visible, making them a great specimen overall for beginners, especially with their docile nature. Their small size means their enclosure doesn’t take up too much space and they are easy to maintain. Make sure to allow a fair amount of substrate in the enclosure so they can create a burrow to their liking, but also provide some structure for them to attach all their webbing.
If you can get your hands on one of these, they are most certainly a fantastic addition to your collection.
