Description

Scientific Name: Cyriopagopus Albostriatus (Previously Haplopelma albostriatum)

Common Names: Thai Zebra Tarantula

Not for beginners. The Thai Zebra has amazing striped patterns on it’s legs and abdomen, bringing about the name ” Zebra”. It’s legs are very similar looking to the Skeleton tarantula, except that the Thai Zebra is an old world species that will display defensive and even aggressive behavior much quicker that it’s new world look-alike. When males reach maturity with their ultimate molt, they have a completely different appearance to the female and are also substantially smaller.

Being fossorial (burrowers) the Thai Zebra’s enclosure should have at least 15cm to 20cm of substrate with a hide or starter-burrow that will allow them to create their own designer burrows from which to hunt prey. Other than that, basic husbandry notes can be followed in order to keep this tarantula successfully.
