SPECIES  Haplopelma minax / Cyriopagopus minax

ORIGIN   Thailand / Cambodia

FRAME   16.5x16.5xD5cm Made from recycled products.

DESCRIPTION  AKA lesser Thailand bird eating tarantula. Aggressive burrowing non poisonous spider commonly eaten by the locals. It hides in its burrow and only appears for a few hours each night to prey on small creatures that pass by its burrow.

The colouring on this spider is black/dark brown. Males only live from 2-4 years whilst females can live up to 12 years.

Tarantulas have oversized fangs. When they bite a human ( rare ) they can take a chunk of skin out at the bite site. However the venom is mild so you won't die but you might die from infection if the wound becomes infected ( sepsis ) and no treatment is sought.
