This beautiful 8-legged creature is found exclusively in Trinidad. The orange markings and the green sheen on the carapace make this animal very attractive. If you ensure sufficient air circulation and humidity, the posture is easy. They are the greatest representatives of the genus Psalmopoeus, very good eaters, self-confident and, if necessary, very quick.
