Invertebrates – Pink-Toed Tarantula
Friday, November 4th, 2022
The Pink-Toed tarantula is a small arboreal species native to the rainforests of South America and the Southern Caribbean. This species is sometimes called the Guyana pink-toe, common pink-toe, or South American Pink-toe. The mature pink-toe tarantula has a dark-colored body and pinkish feet, hence its name. Juvenile specimens, however, have pinkish bodies and dark-colored feet. Pink-Toed Tarantula undergoes a reversal in their coloration as they approach adulthood at 4-5 years. They are sit-and-wait predators, with limited activity.
