Phormictopus atrichomatus (Red Island Bird-Eater)
CURRENT SIZE 2"
This beautiful tarantula is brownish with a reddish pubescence all over its body. Freshly molted adult specimens are stunning with a bright metallic sheen to the carapace and gorgeous reddish hairs. The species grows quickly and is easy to raise. Although it has plenty of attitude and is best left alone, this spider is a wonderful terrarium pet.
