What It Says On The Box:
Love Heart Butt (Cyriocosmus elegans)
This is one of the smallest yet most colourful species in the hobby. They have tiger stripes and a heart shape on the abdomen, plus a mettalic red carapace with a black triangle on the front part like a Brachypelma emilia. There is also a second form from Venezuela which lacks this black triangle. Very little is known about its natural history. In the wild it is reported to lead a nomadic style of life hiding under logs, in burrows as well as possibly found in hollows of trees some above the ground.
Mexican Tiger Rump (Davus pentalore)
This tarantula is attractively coloured with a black and orange striped abdomen, orange carapace and black legs. The abdomen also sometimes has a spot in the dorso-medial area but this can vary. Spiderlings and adults have the same colouration and there is not colour sexual dimorphism. A fast growing species, well fed specimens can be mature within a few years. Whilst not defensive, this species is skittish and moves fast. They are good feeders and care should be taken not to overfeed them. They are the perfect intermediate species of tarantula.
Pumpkin Patch (Hapalopus sp. "Colombia")
Calm Species with beautiful marking on the carapace and abdomen, these are the larger form of the tarantula and max out around 8cm legspan.
