Description

Size/Age:

The juvenile Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantula, Lasiodora parahybana, is an arachnid species that has already begun to exhibit the characteristics that make its adult counterpart a favourite among enthusiasts. Even at this young stage, these tarantulas are noticeably larger than other juvenile tarantulas, hinting at their eventual impressive size. While they haven’t yet reached their full potential of 8 to 10 inches in leg span for females and 5 to 6 inches for males, they already show promising growth rates. Juvenile salmon pink bird eating tarantulas display a more muted version of the pinkish hue that they will eventually mature into. At this stage, their urticating hairs are not as vibrant but lean more towards a subdued reddish-brown. These hairs serve a dual purpose: camouflage on the forest floor and a defence mechanism against potential threats. When irritated, they can flick these hairs, causing discomfort to predators. Even as juveniles, these are generally docile and less prone to aggression compared to some other tarantula species. This makes them relatively low-maintenance and good for beginners who are learning the ropes of arachnid care. Being a New World species, their venom is milder in comparison to Old World tarantulas. Yet, their fangs are already quite strong and capable of immobilising prey. They have a varied diet that mostly consists of smaller insects at this stage, though as they grow, they’ll be able to tackle larger prey. These juvies prefer a terrestrial lifestyle, spending most of their time close to the ground rather than climbing. While they do indulge in some burrowing behaviours, they are not extensively fossorial. However, providing a good depth of substrate allows them to create burrows, which serve as a secure space for them to retreat to.

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.
