Description

Scientific Name: Lasiodora Parahybana

Common Names: Salmon Pink Bird Eating Tarantula | Brazilian Salmon Pink Tarantula

Looking for something big? Really big? Well the Salmon Pink Bird Eating Tarantula ranks among the worlds heavyweights when it comes to size, only trumped by Theraphosa Blondi – Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula and Theraphosa Strimi – Burgundy Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula.

Starting at a few millimeters as a sling, they can grow up to 25cm (10 inches) and more. This is a true MONSTER when it comes to large tarantulas, but also a gentle soul making it an attractive species to consider handling. However, with females getting so large and heavy, great care should be taken because any significant fall will injure or even cause fatal internal damage to your tarantula.

Thankfully, something that gets this big doesn’t carry a bad attitude. These tarantulas can be a bit skittish and a bit nervous when young, but usually become very timid and mellow as they age. Generally a pleasure to keep and work with.
