Brazilian Black and White Tarantula (Brazilopelma colloratvillosum)

The Brazilian Black and White Tarantula is a very rare, expensive, and desirable tarantula species! It is another beautiful black and white striped tarantula, like the Brazilian Whiteknee Tarantula (Acanthoscurria geniculata), but with broader strips of white hairs. This tarantula species can get fairly large too, adding to it's appeal. The Brazilian Black and White Tarantula is not usually seen for sale in the United States, but can be found easier in Europe. These tarantulas aren't too aggressive, but won't hesitate to flick urticating hairs if disturbed. Brazilian Black and White Tarantulas can be great display tarantulas because they are so hard to obtain, along with the beauty they possess.
