this is a sought after T in the hobby originating from Africa that i, as an experienced keeper, have yet to understand why. it is an extremely aggressive old world tarantula(meaning it has no urticating hairs and its first defense is to bite). they spend 99% of there lives hidden in deep burrows, only coming out late at night in search of food. although they are attractive and reach massive body size(growing up to 10"), most keepers only get an opportunity to see it a couple times a year! this is not a spider to get if one wants to actually see there pet.
