Flitz is a Salmon pink birdeater Tarantula, these are among the largest spiders in the Tarantula world and can grow up to a whopping 12 inches in legspan. My Flitz hasn't quite got there yet but she is an impressive 8 inches at present.
She is mostly brown/black in colouration and packs fangs much akin to samurai swords in size, they are huge!
She has a temper to match so I would very much advise new keepers to stay away from this spider until they have more experience, as mine tends to threat posture when the lid pops open and she isn't afriad to show a bit of fang.
However she's a fantastic feeder and takes prey down with extreme force, very fun to feed!
