This is a rarely offered tarantula that is new to the hobby. It will stand out in your collection because of its strikingly orange carapace and shiny black abdomen and legs. This tarantula is skittish as a youngster but will stay out in the open as it gets bigger. It is known to have a gentle disposition and does not offer a threat pose or kick hairs easily. If you are looking to add something a bit rare, you will be happy with this species.
