Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula

Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula. The Chilean rose tarantula or Grammostola rosea also known as the Chilean flame tarantula, Chilean fire tarantula or the Chilean red haired tarantula or the Chilean rose hair tarantula is probably the most common species of tarantula available in pet stores today, due to the large number of wild caught specimens exported cheaply from their native Chile. Grammostola rosea originates from the northern Atacama Desert region of Chile and live in the driest deserts on earth. Grammostola rosea  is a common pet of tarantula rearers.

It has been a quarter of months, yeah, almost three months that I have had my Rose-haired Tarantula. It was a little over 12 weeks now. She has moulted/molted once because I am doing powerfeed on him.

I can say that it is one of the most docile or easily taught tarantulas in my collection. It was fun petting this specific hairy spiders. I have learned that the Rose-haired Tarantula has been a standard pet in shops and at home. It can even be part of a science room. How cool is that eh?

Unlike other spiders, this one is quiet and a little shy in terms of spider actions. They require a little room or space unlike the Mexican True Red Leg Tarantula. They are easy to care for and easy to pet.

They are also good-natured and handleable though holding them might cause stress. It should not be hold on for quite a while or often.

They are also inexpensive. They would produce a lot of offsprings, too! THey can produce 500 babies with higher survival.

They can be kept in simple enclosures or house. An aquarium with soil for a shallow burrow is provided. It is advisable to put a piece of driftwood, cork bark, hollow log, or tree-parts so that it can climb and explore its house. Do not practice to put them on different houses now and then. You may put plants and other decorations so long it will not harm the Rose-haired Tarantula.
