Spiders to breed at home
Trixopelma cyaneum, female specie. 8” (20cm) with legs.
Acanthoscurria brocklehursti – large birdeater spider from Brazil. Watch out for your eyes – his tiny hairs are very poisonous and could damage your eyesight.

Brachypelma verdezi – rare and pretty calm spider from the tropical rain forest of southern Mexico.
Columbian one – Pamphobeteus fortis.
