Tarantula - Pumpkin Patch
Hapalopus SP Colombia
the genus translates to “hapalo-” simple, and “-pus” foot. The common name references the spider’s orange spots and black patterning on its abdomen which resemble somewhat a group of pumpkins. The adult tarantula should be kept in a 1 gallon terrarium. Larger terrariums can be used, though more space is not necessary. The spider is a burrower, so sufficient substrate should be provided for it to be able to do so.
At least ½”. Grows up to 3”.
Females, 8-10 yrs. Males 3-4 yrs. Females mature in about 2 yrs while males mature in as little as 1 yr.
