Terrific Tiger Rump Tarantula

Terrific terrarium pet! Orange/red and black markings on her abdomen was what caught my eye. She was about an inch long when I acquired her in October 2005. Nearly 6 years later, she's grown to about 3.5 inches now. Fast growing in the first few years, molting an average of twice a year. Usually very docile, but she can be quite a "fire-cracker". Low maintenance and very interesting to watch.
