Meet the Grammostola pulchra, widely acclaimed as the "Zen Master" 🧘‍♀️ of the tarantula world, exuding an unparalleled tranquility that sets it apart as the most docile of all species. Whether you're a tarantula neophyte seeking a gentle initiation or a seasoned collector craving an exceptionally placid companion, the Brazilian Black is your serene soulmate. With its velvety, obsidian-black appearance 🖤, this majestic creature is not just a pet but an aesthetic marvel 🎨.. Its easy-going nature means you can focus on admiring its beauty rather than fretting over complex care routines.

Care/Husbandry: Level - Easiest Pie The Brazilian Black is as low-maintenance as a succulent! Hailing from sub-tropical climates, they're like the yogis of the tarantula world, incredibly adaptable and content. Keep their home moderately moist, but let's skip the swamp vibes, shall we? While adult tarantulas appreciate a water dish, the little ones are less fussy. Crank up the heat, because these beauties love a good sun salutation in temperatures ranging from the cozy mid-70s to the warm low-80s.

Shipping costs:

I charge a standard rate of $50 for shipping tarantulas, and isopods.
I take a loss on shipping, on every package.
There are many costs associated with shipping that are not evident on the surface level:
An insulated box.
Cold/heat pack.
The vials that the animals go inside of have to be drilled a certain way.
The preparation of the vials with padding takes labor to make.
So $50 for shipping is actually a bargain.
Packages go out usually Monday/Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday.
I will not ship after Wednesday, because if there are shipping delays, I do not want it to go over the weekend.

Live Arrival Guarantee:

I offer LAG (Live Arrival Guarantee) on every single package that I ship.
Animals usually arrive at your doorstep, or your nearest FedEx hub the following day after I ship.  Usually 10am, but that is not always the case.
Sometimes it might take an additional day to arrive, but that is rare.
In the RARE case that the animal/s arrive DOA (dead on arrival), the receiver MUST send photos and video to me within an hour documenting the condition of the said animal.
We will then discuss replacement options if that is the case.
I've been shipping and sending hundreds if not thousands of packages over the last 10 years with an impeccable track record.
Shipping costs on DOA’s are never refundable.

Local Pick Up: 

Local pick up in Los Angeles is always available.
If you live close, come pick up the animals.
I can also personally deliver the animals the same/next day if the order is over $200.



Where do you get your enclosures?
For a good quality enclosure, I recommend Herpcult Enclosures

What substrate do you use?
I prefer coco fiber substrate mixed with peat. Usually a 80/20 mixture.
Coco or similar
Sphagnum Peat Moss or similar

What temperature do you keep your tarantulas in?
I have my room set at 80°F, but they will be perfectly fine in temperatures between 69°F-83°F. I prefer using the Govee thermometer.

Are tarantulas venomous?
Yes, all spiders are venomous. However, tarantulas do not possess a medically significant venom. There have been no records of any humans dying due to a tarantula bite.

What happens if I get bit by a tarantula?
On the rare occasion that you get bit by a tarantula, remain calm. Do not run hot water over the wound because it will speed up the spread of the venom. Instead, clean the bite mark with room temperature water and monitor your symptoms. If your pain does not go away, please consult a physician.

What do you feed your tarantulas?
I feed my tarantulas crickets, roaches, mealworms, or superworms. However, crickets are always the easiest and most accessible from pet stores.
Tongs I use are- My favorite option or a less expensive alternative.

How often do you feed your tarantulas?
I feed my tarantulas once a week or bi-weekly.
