  • Classic staple of the hobby due to both their size and appearance, members of this species are known to regularly reach an 11" diagonal leg span.
  • Excellent display species that quite often sits out in the open.
  • Very hardy species able to withstand temperature and humidity fluctuations.
  • Known to be among the more docile species, their easygoing nature paired with their impressive size and tendency to stay out in the open makes this species an absolutely lovely addition to anyone's pets.

The Lasiodora Parahybana is most commonly known as the Brazilian Salmon Pink Birdeater. The genus name Lasiodora has Greek roots meaning "shaggy" and "hide(skin)" and it's definitely well earned as the genus is full of some of the fuzziest! The species name, Parahybana likely comes from the fact that it was initially discovered in Paraíba.

Enclosure: The length and width should both be at minimum three to four times the spider's diagonal leg span. The enclosure should be tall enough to accommodate at least 2"-3" of substrate for babies, with adults preferring closer to 5" for burrowing. There should be no more than two times the diagonal leg span of the spider for head space, as anything higher risks injury to your spider should it climb and fall.

Temperature:  72°-80° with the natural range averaging 77°. Temperatures above 90° or consistently below 65° should be avoided due to risk of long term health issues or death.

Humidity: 65%-75%, easily achieved by overflowing the water dish and allowing that section of substrate to dry out most of the way before doing so again.

Size: At Josh's Frogs our L. Parahybana slings are about 1/2-3/4"" diagonal leg span at time of sale. They average 8"-11" as adults, with males being much larger, but females being much heavier bodied.

Age: All of our L. Parahybana slings are at least 2-3 months old. Females average a lifespan of 15 years, while males can be expected to last 3-5 years.

Feeding: At time of purchase they are consistently feeding on ¼" crickets two times a week. As they grow they will only require weekly feedings, with full grown adults will eat up to two dubia roaches, one orange head roach, 3 superworms or several large crickets a week. They are fantastic eaters and will seldom turn down a bug except in premolt or directly after a molt. Do not attempt to feed for at least one week after a molt.

Sexing: Due to age, L Parahybana spiderlings sold by Josh's Frogs are sold as unsexed. Specimens of 2.5"-3" diagonal leg span will be able to start being accurately sexed. The most accurate method is always molt sexing, the molt of a female tarantula of appropriate size will have spermatheca and a uterus externus in between the top two sets of book lungs that will appear as a "flap" that will catch and open if a pin is gently run down this section of the old exoskeleton. Males will have a much more plain slit that will not budge with attempts to manipulate it.

Color: Spiderlings are light brown, as adults they grow to be a wonderful grayish brown with reddish setae on the abdomen.

Social Behavior: L. Parahybana are by no means social creatures and any attempts to cohabitate will likely result in cannibalism.

Breeding: Spiders for breeding purposes should remain supervised when together and should only be attempted well fed. Mature males can be put in the enclosure of a mature female for courtship/mating. Remove male promptly after insertion is observed, or immediately if female is aggressive rather than receptive.

Natural Range: They come from Brazil in the Atlantic Forest region. They are particularly well known around Campina Grande.

I received this feisty little thing in the mail and it was unharmed. It is a great eater and is doing quite well and looks healthy. So small but has a big appetite. Very happy with my purchase. This is my second tarantula from this site and have had no issues.
