Brazilian Black Tarantula


Scientific name: Grammostola pulchra

Habitat:  The Brazilian Black Tarantulas is a terrestrial species which is native to grassland areas of Brazil and Uruguay. Brazilian Blacks commonly take over already made burrows from other species, however, if necessary, they will also dig their own. Their burrows are commonly found at the base of trees or under rocks.

The Brazilian Black Tarantula is popular in the pet trade because of its docile and gentle temperament, and because it tends to have a long lifespan - with females sometimes reaching 20 years of age.

My interest in tarantulas began with a couple encounters, a simple fascination of the species and mild fear of arachnids (spider silk still gives me the heebie jeebies). While researching the various species, looking to acquire my first tarantula, I came across Grammostola pulchra (Brazilian Black); I now(Nov 2013) have 17 sub-adult and adult G. pulchra, 93 spiderlings from a sac hatched Aug ...
