These amazing tarantulas are currently rare in the hobby. Unfortunately they are being confused with a picture of my female aphonopelma chalcodes that is doing the rounds as a “L. poycuspultus”. Never the less, they are just as amazing.
These stunning creatures grow up to +- 16cm.
They are very hardy and long-lived.
They are not normally aggressive but not to be handled as they can be skittish.
