Honduran Curly Hair Tarantula

In the wild, the Honduran Curly Hair tarantula is found in the rain forests of Costa Rica and Honduras.  It has a leg span of 4 ½ to 5 ½ inches.  They have a bronze colored body that is covered with short curly hairs. 

The spider is a very common pet tarantula.  It is easily available from your local pet store.  Due to their hardy and docile nature they make a great pet for the beginning collector.  They also require little care.

Care Sheet
A five or ten gallon tank with a locking screen top and under-tank heat pad is recommended to house your spider.  A shallow water bowl and a hide box should also be placed in the tank.  Two to three inches of bed-a-beast or Eco earth should be used as the substrate. 

A lamp with a red bulb can be used for light, but is not necessary. Gut-loaded crickets, waxworms, or mealworms comprise the diet of Honduran Curly Hair tarantulas.
