Rose Hair Tarantula

Level of experience:  Intermediate (with precautions)

Size:  4”-5”

Lifespan:  Males-4-5 Yrs/Females-5-15 Yrs

Lighting is not necessary for tarantulas, in fact most do not like bright light.

Diet: Rose Hair Tarantulas will eat a variety of invertebrate prey such as, crickets. Mealworms, waxworms, and roaches.  A small shallow dish of water should be available, although some tarantulas may ignore it.

Info:  Rose hairs are one of the most docile and even tempered of all the tarantula species.  However, as with any tarantula, it should be remembered that they are venomous.  Most humans suffer no systemic effect from a rose hair tarantula bite, instead experiencing a localized pain.  Although this venom is not fatal to humans, every person will react differently to a bite.  Many people handle rose hair tarantulas all the time, and if done carefully and with respect the tarantula should remain calm and gentle and not tend to bite.
