Pre sub/subadult

The Costa Rican Zebra tarantula can be found in a variety of habitats, including tropical rainforests, dry forests, and savannas. In the wild, they are often found in burrows or under rocks and other debris. Female Costa Rican Zebra Tarantulas can grow up to 5 inches (12 cm) in leg span, while males are typically slightly smaller. These arachnids can live for up to 20 years or more in captivity, while males typically have a shorter lifespan of around 3-5 years.


Costa Rican zebra tarantulas are skittish, fast-moving T’s that are easily spooked and prone to rapid bouts of movement. Due to their unpredictable nature, Aphonopelma seemanni are not particularly suitable for handling, nor for first-time beginner keepers. Like all tarantulas, these spiders are able to flick urticating hairs, and may do so when stressed. These tarantulas have relatively potent venom but are unlikely to bite unless extremely distressed.

Care Requirements

Costa Rican zebra tarantulas are terrestrial tarantulas that require several inches of substrate to allow the tarantula to go about its natural burrowing behaviours. Large rocks, bark, and plants may be added for the animal to tunnel around and under. The Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula prefers warmer temperatures around a range of 75-85°F (24-29°C) during the day, with a slight drop at night. This species thrives in moderately high relative humidity levels of around 60-80% RH, which can be maintained via regular misting of the enclosure, along with adding a water dish which will also keep the animal hydrated. These tarantulas are not recommended for beginners due to their more specific environmental conditions, however, they are not considered difficult to care for either.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail- it’s a priority that your critters are safe & snugly packed.

When you receive your order, open it up and locate the transport container your pet is inside. Gently ease out your pet into the home you’ve prepared for it.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
