Aphonopelma hentzi (Texas Brown Tarantula) about 1/3" - 1/2"


Aphonopelma hentzi (Texas Brown Tarantula) 

This is one of the relatively few species native to the USA.  This species is known to be very docile and long lived, sometimes living over 30 years. Sporting a bronze colored carapace, burgundy abdomen and silky black legs makes this a handsome tarantula.  Ours are rather active and fun to watch.  Even at just 1” they rearrange their habitat like little bulldozers and seem to tend to their home more than any other tarantula we have.  They are long-lived and very hardy.  Though I do not advocate the handling of tarantulas, this is one of the most handleable.  We recommend housing small spiderlings in a small clear container similar to what is shown below.  This will enable you to more fully enjoy the activity of these industrious tarantulas.
