This is one of the largest-growing tarantulas in the world with leg spans reported of up to 9.75″. It is a tropical, arboreal species found in Northern Sulawesi, Indonesia that is very fast, high strung/nervous, and aggressive so it is only for advanced hobbyists. Post molt, they are grey and black with a velvet appearance. Matures males lack tibial spurs and are grayish-green some some muted leg striping. Juvenile to sub-adult males will be uniform black with grayish highlights. Breeding season is spring/summer and the female will make a sac that hatches out in 2-3 months with about 100-150 spiderlings. Growth rate is fast with males maturing in 1-1.5 years and females in 2-3 years. This species is rarely offered in the hobby.
