The Chillean rose hair is perhaps one of the most common to buy in the hobby, they are very pretty spiders and are very active during most hours, always walking their enclosures webbing, cleaning and digging.
A lot of people reccomend this species to first timers, I would not. The rose hair is among one of the most unpredictable in the hobby, they have big mood swings and if not tested properly will charge if provoked or even if you just top up the water dish.
That being said they are a great spider for more experienced keepers and females will last in excess to 30 years in captivity, a great long-term pet for a keeper.
