Scientific name: Grammostola iheringi

The basics:
The Entre Rios Tarantula is native to the Rio Grande river basin in southern Brazil.

Appearance / health:
Adults reach 5-6" on maturity. This spider is an overall dark greenish black color with a very distinct reddish pink abdomen.

Behavior / temperament:
Typically a relatively docile and calm spider, though some have been known to flick hairs if they feel threatened.

Housing:
Terrestrial, with suitable room to burrow. Provide a medium to large size terrestrial enclosure, with enough substrate for the animal to burrow should it choose to do so. These can be kept fairly dry (low humidity) with a water dish. Suitable hiding places should be provided.

Diet:
Invertebrates smaller than itself - crickets, roaches, mealworms.

Breeding:
Very challenging, even for those with tarantula breeding experience.
