The Brazilian red and white tarantula Nhandu chromatus is a tarantula species that is native to Brazil. The Brazilian red and white tarantula Nhandu chromatus is a larger tarantula with a diagonal leg span of approximately 15—17 centimetres 5. The Brazilian red and white tarantula is noted for its white striped legs, beige to grey prosoma , and the reddish hairs on the opisthosoma. Males and females look the same until the ultimate final molt of the males. At this point the male will exhibit sexual dimorphism in the form of a duller coloration and legginess. Additionally males will gain an embolus on the pedipalps and tibial apophysis mating hooks.
A full grown species can reach a size of 9 to 10 inches with ease. It has a brown carapace, not to be confused with the A. The Brazilian Red and White Birdeater tarantula reaches adulthood in 3 to 4 years and can live to be about 11 years or sometimes older in captivity. As full grown adults we recommend an enclosure of about 15 gallons or sometimes even bigger depending on how big yours grow. They are terrestrial burrowers and so you should add anywhere from 4 to 5 inches of substrate. A hide can be added as well just in the event your tarantula does not burrow.
For my birthday last year, my wonderful wife brought me out to a local exotic pet store to do some tarantula shopping. Among the acquisitions I made that day was an A. At the time, I had been looking for an A. Since then, my little guy has quickly become one of my favorites. When I first began looking at A. This is a species that can benefit from a bit of extra humidity, so I made sure to use an enclosure set up that would allow for me to better control these levels.

Although I got urticating bristles up one arm and down the other just trying to get her on my hand, call me crazy, but the pictures were well worth the itch! She'll get to be about 8" or 8. I've been keeping tarantulas for 3 years now, so I guess I'm fairly used to them. However they still seem to surprise me on the "rare" occasion! Thanks for sharing that fantastic picture of your tarantula - for those of us who are just too nervous to get that close and see the detail they have on them. What do they eat? Hey Ciggy!
