RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS. Another of the tarantula “teddy bears”, this is often the first tarantula for many keepers due to it’s calm and docile nature, as well as it’s beautiful golden striped “knees” which contrast with it’s dark brown body coloring. This also makes a great display tarantula because of it’s bold and easy going nature, happy to sit out in the open most of the time. They generally eat really well and grow quite fast. They are also known to be re-decorators when younger, burying their water dishes, building burrows and tunnels until they feel everything looks just right. A pleasure to keep and own.
