Brazilian Black and White Tarantula (Nhandu coloratovillosus). This new world species is native to the grasslands of Brazil. While ambient humidity ranges from 60%-80% in their natural habitat, this species is very hardy and dry tolerant. Being a New World terrestrial tarantula, N. Coloratovillosus possesses mild venom but makes up for it with uritcating hairs. This species will not hesitate to use their uritcating hairs when threatened and tend to be very skittish. Adult females of this species can potentially grow up to 6"-7", living for up to 15-20 years in captivity. These spiders make impressive display specimens with their large size, striking patterns, and red hairs. They tend to be heavy burrowers as slings and juveniles, but will often stay out in the open once reaching adulthood. I find these spiders to be very underrated within the hobby, and are very hard to get a hold of as subadults and adults.
