Aphonopelma chalcodes (Arizona Blonde Tarantula) 3″ – 4″ Female
This very handsome species is normally quite docile. This is a good choice for a display tarantula because they tend to stay out in the open and are not usually startled easily. Calm and docile is the dominate temperament displayed. They are certainly very easy to care for and quite hardy. We frequently use this species at expos as an “Ambassador” for tarantulas because of it’s easy going nature. This species does not seem to be stressed by being taken out and handled, and actually seems to ‘enjoy’ exploring.
As with most adult chalcodes offered, these are wild-caught from the United States. This is the only species we offer that is wild-caught.
