Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grammostola pulchra is a terrestrial tarantula native to Brazil. The species is desirable in the pet trade because of their females, long life and reputation for being docile and gentle in temperament, as well as for its appealing dark coloration making them expensive from breeders. Commonly known as the Brazilian black, mature specimens are almost entirely black. Although like most new world tarantulas it possesses urticating hairs it is said to have a reduced tendency to kick them off when handled, which adds to its desirability as a pet. The Brazilian Black is a slow grower, taking up to seven years to reach maturity. Because of a ban on the export of wild caught specimens and its slow growth, mature females (preferred because of their long life) are generally expensive. As with all tarantulas, females of this species will almost always outlive males by many years.show more
