Brachypelma albopilosum / Honduran Curlyhair
1/2~ 3/4" spiderlings
This beautiful Brachypelma comes from the rainforests of Central America and is considered to be one of the most popularly available species in the genus. They look like they have had a bad hair day with interesting long curled brown setae on the legs and abdomen, like they stepped out of a hair dryer. The hairs have accents of gold and tan that display well in the right lighting. They can be on the defensive side for a Brachypelma, however they are still recommended and are great beginner species. Forthose who want a tarantula with personality this is it, reaching 5.5”+ as adults.
