Brazilian Salmon - Pink Bird Eating Spider (Lasiodora Parahybana)

This giant tarantula has lived the longest that I have kept for my photography I have kept her for over 17 years now, and this female has grown to a huge size. I measured her latest skin over 9” This Brazilian Salmon Pink Birdeater is one of the largest spiders in the world and can reach to 10 inches.   

For a large spider, it is the most delicate eaters, because whatever size of live food I place in it enclosure it will always only eat one at a time.  Unlike my other spiders which collect as many as they can carry. Although she will rarely turn down a cricket or larger prey chasing it at speed, sometimes before my hand is out of its tank. It spends most of its time resting half out of a large flower pot always face forwards so it makes a great display tarantula. My spider has not shown any aggression towards me and she does not seem to be worried about my disturbance when feeding, changing water or cleaning the tank. But when trying to move her for my photography she sometimes kicks large clouds of urticating hairs if she did not want to be moved she would retreated into her flowerpot and I found out how incredibly strong these animals can be.
