Scientific name: Brachypelma verdezi

The basics:
The Mexican Rose Grey Tarantula is a terrestrial tarantula which is found in dry deciduous forests in the state of Guerrero, Mexico.

Appearance / health:
Adults attain a size of roughly 5-6" in leg span. Coloration is an overall grey-black, with a black triangle on the carapace and a rosy-brown setae (hair) that covers the 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.
