Hi!

I'm getting a few new t's tomorow and i was planning on getting a S.arndsti.

anyone have info on them? What size can they reach?

Only thing I know is they are very defensive, come from new guinea and are deep burrower.

Thanks in advance:)

hello, that is a very interessting species, lucky you:)

It can reach about 5-6 inches, I think!?

But it have also more potent venom then most other tarantulas and it is also very shy, like many other asian species:)

Cheers

Mine is VERY shy.

It's grown well, likes it fairly humid.
and I see it only when I shiine a light into the burrow ( system of tunnels ) it has made.

but the stark contrast of rust red to the black femurs is awesome.

Great T,

Martin H. suggested more people breed these.

BTW the local nickname is "Cow Tipper" hmm
