Description

Size/Age:

Chilobrachys huahini, commonly known as the Asian Fawn Tarantula, is a beautiful species of tarantula from the tropical regions of Asia, particularly in Thailand. Notably, it is not as widely recognized as some other tarantulas, but it has some unique characteristics that make it a point of interest for enthusiasts. Asian Fawn tarantulas exhibit a subdued color palette compared to many of their kin, with hues ranging from a muted brown to a soft fawn, which accounts for their common name. Chilobrachys huahini is an Old World species, meaning it originates from the Eastern Hemisphere, mainly Asia, Africa, and Europe. They are known for being more defensive compared to New World species (those from the Americas), and they lack the urticating hairs that New World tarantulas use as a defensive measure. Instead, their primary defence is their potent venom, which, while not life-threatening to humans, can cause significant discomfort. Asian Fawn tarantulas are a fossorial species, meaning they are burrowers by nature. They prefer to spend most of their time underground, coming out mainly to hunt or during the night. In captivity, an enclosure that allows for deep substrate for them to burrow is essential to replicate their natural habitat. They are a medium to large-sized tarantula, with females reaching a leg span of approximately 6 inches when fully grown. The females also tend to live longer than the males, which is a common trait among tarantulas. While not recommended for beginners due to their defensiveness, speed and potent venom, the Asian Fawn tarantula is an attractive option for more experienced keepers. Their burrowing behaviour and the challenge they present can make keeping them a rewarding experience for those prepared for their care needs.
