Brachypelma smithi is the "Hobby classic tarantula". Coveted by beginners and experienced keepers alike, B. smithi is one of my personal favorites. Known for being large, colorful and docile this scrub-land species is extremely hardy. Females can live to be older than 30 years. These spiderlings were captive-bred here at Jamie's Tarantulas. Check out OUR BLOG to see pictures of the mother and the developing babies.
Brachypelma albopilosum (curlyhair tarantula) is docile and hardy. This makes for a good beginner tarantula. Long, curly setae "hairs" give this species a unique appearance. These well-started juveniles are beginning to show adult color. Pictured is one of the juveniles currently available.
