Eupalaestrus weijenberghi, Whitecollared. Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. The carapace and first three pair of legs are brown with the abdomen and last pair of legs darker brown. Red hairs occur on the legs and abdomen. The legs are banded at the ends of each segment and a cream-colored band is at the base of the chelicerae, hence the common name. This has been a popular spider in Europe but has just recently appeared in the US This is a burrowing species from the grasslands but will adapt to a tank with shallow substrate and a retreat. Life span is probably 20 years or more.

This is all from e-spiderworld.com

LOVE THOSE WEIJENS!!!

LOVE THOSE WEIJENS but...

they are sloooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwww growers.

I consider them to be the "dog tamest" tarantula of them all. Period. Here's my pic taken (one hand with weijen, other holding the camera) they aren't skiddish runners, flickers, etc. They just sit there. I'd never sell my gal.

They are from Argentina and Uruguay. Females live about 10-15 years, they are burrowers that are kept on the drier side with a water dish always available. They are prone to fasting but do well as long as they keep their body weight and have water available.

More greyish than brown, with cream colored leg banding.

how cute!!

Just when I thought my tarantula acquisitions were over and done with... (I'm sticking to placid, calm terrestrials). However, being that I'm leery of slings, I better start saving my money..

Peace,
Gillian

Yes, I've got one! I raised it from a speck. At least, I THINK I've raised it, as it is still relatively small (see photo). This dimunitive species is very slow growing, as others have said, very docile, and very easy to keep. You do need a fair amount of patience, however ;)

Heh - all Joy's spiders look like they're about ready to pop. You should see some of her more 'robust' specimen -- they're as broad as they are long! ;)
