Species: L. parahybana
The Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantula (Lasiodora parahybana), also simply known as the salmon pink or LP, is a relatively large tarantula from north-eastern Brazil. L. parahybana is considered to be the third largest tarantula in the world (behind Theraphosa blondi and Theraphosa apophysis; however, the largest spider is the giant huntsman spider in terms of leg-span).
It was discovered and described in 1917 by Cândido Firmino de Mello-Leitão, in Paraíba, where the tarantula is endemic. They are popular pets in the tarantula hobby due to their large size and readiness to breed.
