This species is easily one of the most recognizable spiders in the hobby. Large arboreal species that can obtain a leg span up to 7 inches or possibly more. The tiger stripes and leg flares are unmistakable as anything else other then the “Suntiger tarantula”. Fast growing and easy to breed, this is a legendary species from Venezuela. However they can also be found in Guyana and Brazil. First described in 1994 by Frank Saager.
