Chilean Rose Bird Eating Spider
Found in Chile, South America, the Chile Rose is considered to be the most docile of the tarantula family. A predatory carnivore, their diet ranges from insects to small mammals. In captivity we feed them live crickets, meal worms or morio worms about once a week.
- Live up to 25 years.
- With an exoskeleton which they molt once a year to enable growth.
- Adult Chilean Rose can grow to 15 centimetres across.

Chilean Rose spiders have irritating hairs all over their abdomen which they can drop or kick off. If the intended victim gets these hairs in the eyes, it can cause temporary blindness.
