Brazilian Black Tarantula

Meet our Brazilian Black Tarantula.

Grammostola pulchra is a species of tarantula native to Brazil. It is known for its solid black body, which makes it an appealing tarantula for the pet trade.

Commonly known as the Brazilian black, mature specimens are almost entirely black. Although like most new world tarantulas it possesses urticating hairs, if provoked, they would much rather flee than attack. Their venom is not as irritating as many other species of tarantulas.

The Brazilian black is a slow grower, taking up to eight years to reach maturity, reaching up to 7 inches.
