Gold banded sunburst dwarf tarantula
Longevity: ♂ ~ 3 years / ♀ ~ 12 years
Body size without legs (cm/in): ~ 3/1,25
Neischnocolus panamanaus (formerly known as Ami sp. panama) is a Central American dwarf tarantula which, in our opinion, at first glance resembles a juvenile T. vagans with white stripes on the leg segments. Due to their small size, we heared again and again of owners who put the spider in a small food can (in Germany crickets etc. are sold in plastic cans - 10 x 10 x 6 cm). However, in order to be able to really enjoy the appearance and the hustle and bustle of the dwarf tarantula, we can definitely recommend a larger dwelling. We have only had this species for a short time, so our experience with it is correspondingly limited. Like all other descriptions on 8-legged.com, this text will be expanded, supplemented and, if necessary, changed in the future.
