Description

About

Chilean rose tarantulas, Grammostola rosea, are stunning pink-brown T’s hailing from the northern regions of Chile, South America. In the wild, they are found in the Atacama Desert and the surrounding scrublands. They inhabit dry, arid environments and are adapted to survive in extreme temperatures and low humidity. The Chilean rose hair tarantula is a hardy species that has become popular in the pet trade due to its docile nature and ease of care. This is a medium-sized species of tarantula, with adult females typically growing to a size of 5-6 inches or 13-15 cm in leg span, and males typically growing slightly smaller to around 4-5 inches or 10-13 cm in leg span. Females live on average between 15 and 20 years, males for a shorter period of around 5 years.

Temperament

The Chilean rose hair tarantula is generally considered to be one of the more docile species of tarantula. They are known for their calm and passive temperament, and are less likely to bite than some other tarantula species. They are often described as being slow-moving and somewhat lethargic, which makes them easier to handle and less likely to be stressed by human interaction. These spiders are predictable in nature and unlikely to unexpectedly bolt off or bite their handler.

Care Requirements

Grammostola rosea are renowned for their ease of care and popularity as a top beginner tarantula species. This T is well-adapted to arid, desert life and as such requires environmental conditions to match. These arachnids prefer a warm environment of around 70-85°F (21-29°C),  with a humidity levels kept lower at around 50% relative humidity. Enclosure may be misted weekly to ensure adequate humidity levels, and a water dish should be provided to allow the tarantula to drink. These spiders love to burrow and will appreciate at least several inches of bedding, along with bark, rocks, and other decorative items for them to tunnel under and around.
