Brazilian Red And White (Nhandu chromatus)
CURRENT SIZE: .25"
Also known as the "White-striped Bird-eater", this tarantula is widely popular despite a defensive disposition and a penchant for flicking its urticating hairs. It is a very attractive spider with a brick-red abdomen and intricately marked white and black legs, and makes for a fabulous display spider. Formerly known as "Lasiodora cristata", keepers have long enjoyed this fast-growing and hardy tarantula from Brazil.
