    Another cutie in this genus, thank you for sharing! @babelfish
    They are quite small though. They must be the smallest arboreals I've come across on here.

    first footage of Typhochlaena costae Bertani, 2012 in natural living space.
    The genus shows an arboreal trapdoor lifestyle, which hasn't been seen on theraphosid spiders before.

    Are they difficult to breed because of the price?
