The pink toe tarantula has a leg span of 3 1/2 to 5 inches.
Female pink toe tarantulas live up to 10 years, while males live slightly less.
They rarely bite, but they are quick and jump when startled.
Pink toe tarantulas need a taller tank than other terrestrial species for ample room to climb. The tank should contain 2 to 3 inches of peat moss or soil (free of fertilizers or pesticides), as well as logs, branches, and live plants for climbing.
A hardy species of tarantulas, pink toes can tolerate a wide temperature range from 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, in ideal conditions, the enclosure shouldn’t fluctuate lower than 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher than 82 degrees Fahrenheit. To mimic your spider’s native environment of Costa Rica or Brazil, humidity levels of 65 to 75 percent also need to be maintained.
