Lasiodora klugi

(Koch, 1842)

Bahia Scarlet (terrestrial)
Brazil
~ 9 cm bodylength
Longevity: ♀ ~ 15 years, ♂ ~ 5 years

An impressive representative from Brazil. With a body length of up to nine cm and a rather bulky appearance, Lasiodora klugi are among the large tarantulas. If they are disturbed, they are not stingy to use their urticating hairs, the eating behavior can also be very aggressive. It is worth considering whether you want to breed this species, since egg sacs with well over a thousand eggs should be possible.
