Product Description

Aphonopelma seemanni (Costa Rican Zebra, Stripe Knee Tarantula)


 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.
