Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula

Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula or Grammostola Rosea also known as the Chilean Flame Tarantula, Chilean Fire Tarantula or the Chilean Red Haired tarantula or the Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula or depending on the colormorph, is probably the most common species of tarantula available in pet stores today, due to the large number of wild caught specimens exported cheaply from their native Chile into the US pet trade. Grammostola Rosea originates from the northern Atacama Desert region of Chile and live in the driest deserts on earth. Grammostola Rosea is a common pet of tarantula rearers. Females have been known to live as long as 15 to 20 years but due to the limited time they have been available on the market and hence for extensive study, there is a possibility that they may live considerably longer.
