Aphonopelma seemanni (Costa Rican Zebra, Stripe Knee Tarantula) FEMALE 4" - 5"


If you purchased a sexed tarantula: We guarantee the sex of your tarantula for three months or until the next molt.  I know that might sound silly at first, but we want to prevent you from raising up a tarantula for years only then to be hit with the surprise of a mature male.  This also prevents someone from coming back to us years later and telling us they purchased a female but there may be no record of the purchase or there may be a question of if that particular tarantula was from Fear Not.  So to avoid all those unpleasant possibilities, we ask that either you verify the sex with the next molt yourself,  or send it in a vial and we will sex it under the microscope again.

We do not sell a tarantula as sexed unless we are as certain of the sex as we can be using a molt to confirm, but mistakes are possible.

 A terrestrial New World species found in Costa Rica and Central America. They will have a dark brown coat, complemented by bright white or beige-colored stripes running along its legs. This striped pattern is what gives the A. seemanni its “Zebra” and “Striped-Knee” common name. As spiderlings they spend the majority of their time burrowed deep into the substrate only occasionally coming out into the open usually to feed or have a drink. Once they are over 3” they tend to spend a little more time out in the open. Even as adults though, this species seems to prefer having the ability to burrow and, if given enough substrate, will make burrows all the way down to the bottom of the enclosure and can stay hidden in their burrow for months at a time.
