The Brachypelma Albopilosum or otherwise also known as the Honduran Curly Hair is a species whose original habitat is located in the Central Americas, in the savannas, like its cousin, the Mexican Red knee Tarantula. However, their faster growth rate compared to the Red Knees makes it a more appealing species for beginners. Although not as colorful as some other tarantulas, the Brachypelma Albopilosum exudes its own sort of charm. Its wooly and fur like body gives it a very scruffy look. Also, upon a closer look, you will find gold and tan hairs covering the body. These tarantulas are a ground-dwelling species and thus requires more land space than height. This tarantulas hardy nature also makes it a great beginner tarantula. Although like most central Americas tarantulas, they do have “urticating hairs”. However, they are not quick to flick them. Considered by hobbyist all around as one of the more “gentle” species, this only adds on to the appeal for beginning hobbyist. The Brachypelma Albopilosum is usually very active when in captivity, sometimes even moving the decor around.
