Product Description

The Salmon Pink Birdeater – Latin name Lasiodora parahybana – is known as one of the largest species of spider in the world.

Reputedly just behind the three recognised Golith Birdeaters, the Salmon Pink is generally considered the fourth largest spider known to science. It is not unheard of for this species to grow to an impressive 25cm or so across the legs.

In contrast to the Goliaths, however, these tarantulas tend to be far more colourful. As the name would suggest, they clothed in rich pink hair, particularly on the abdomen, which is presented over the top of a silky, chocolatey-brown or black base.

These pink hairs are particularly noticeable in adult males, which can often look quite “fluffy” in appearance.

Both their size and colour make these a truly impressive specimen, but they can also make very easy-going pets. If you’re looking for a spider with a real “wow factor” then you may just have found it in the form of the Salmon Pink tarantula.
