Even people who avoid spiders cannot deny the cuteness of this species. Not only do these dwarf tarantulas, which are sometimes very hidden, only reach a body length of a good cm, they also have a mirrior on the abdomen that resembles a heart. They all do credit to this, as this species is very peaceful and harmless. But as they grow up, they spend most of their time underground.
