Genus Aphonopelma
Sub Phylum: Chelicerata
Class: Arachnida
Order: Araneae

Family: Theraphosidae
Genus: Species: Tarantulas occur worldwide . Those found in North America occur in the southern and southwestern states, including the dry and warmer parts of the southern California. These are smaller and generally have a body length of less than 2 inches and a leg span of from 3 to 4 inches. See one in action in this video Related Species The Desert Tarantula (Aphonopelma chalcodes) grows 2 to 3 inches long and is colored gray to dark brown. It is common to the Sonoran, Chihuahuan and Mojave deserts of Arizona, New Mexico and Southern California. The most common North American tarantula is Eurypelma californicum, found in California, Texas, and Arizona. A 30-year life span has been recorded for one individual of this species. Certain South American tarantulas, which have a body length of up to almost 3 in., build large webs and eat small birds. Comparisons The majority of tarantulas are black or brown but some species exhibit striking colors.

Tarantula care
Tarantulas are spiders belonging to the family Theraphosidae . They are characterized by having tarsi (feet) with two claws and claw tufts. Tarantulas can be kept as house pets . A terrarium with an inch or two of damp vermiculite or a mixture of soil and sphagnum moss (but not with cedar shavings as they are toxic to many spiders) on bottom provides an ideal habitat. (Burrowing tarantulas will require a much deeper layer.) Tarantulas can be fed a variety of living animals (insects, small mice, small fish in the water bowl, and reptiles are on their menu).
The true tarantula
The true tarantulas are all spiders of the family Theraphosidae , sometimes called bird spiders or monkey spiders. Related families include the funnel-web spiders and the trap door spiders, which sometimes also get called tarantulas. The family Theraphosidae includes over 300 different species of tarantulas , divided over 12 subfamilies (formerly 13). Tarantulas are excellent climbers.

William F. Lyon Over the past few years, tarantulas have become acceptable pets now widely sold, traded and kept in houses, apartments, schools and dormitories. Occasionally, these very large, hairy spiders escape within a dwelling causing alarm and panic among those fearing spiders. Actually, most tarantulas are docile, non-aggressive and rarely bite. Bites are not considered dangerous and cause little lasting pain. Bites are no more painful than a bee sting, and its symptoms should be treated similarly. Some have a dense covering of special hairs on the abdomen, which, when dislodged, cause skin irritation. This is mechanical rather than chemical in nature. The name tarantula has unfortunately become associated with several spider families, but most often is applied to the ones called the hairy mygalmorphs. Tarantulas have been much publicized in horror shows in movie houses and television shows due to their forbidding hairy appearance.
The largest tarantulas are tropical with a body length of 3-1/2 inches and leg span of 9-1/2 inches. The largest United States' species has a body length of two inches and leg span of about six inches. These spiders are stout-bodied and covered with hollow, needlelike, barbed hairs, especially on the abdomen. When disturbed, the hind legs are used to scrape off and throw very fine (fiberglass-like) abdominal hairs in the direction of danger, resulting in a remaining bald spot. A bald spot may also occur on the abdomen prior to the shedding of the skin. Hairs may cause a skin rash, allergic reaction and possibly anaphylactic shock to certain individuals.

Choosing a Pet Tarantula
Tarantulas have been a relatively popular pet now for several years. They are unique, quiet, and need little space, and keeping tarantulas as pets can make a fascinating hobby. However, they aren't the best choice as a pet that you will be able to handle very much, largely due to stress and danger to the spider rather than danger to the handler (more on that later). There are many species available in the pet trade in a vary of sizes and appearances, and they are usually easy to care for, but that depends a bit on the species. Because the needs for housing and care will vary for different species, it is important to understand the species being considered as a pet. There are over 800 species of tarantula, belonging to the family

Mojave National Preserve
Tarantulas are very large spiders, often with a leg span of six inches. They are usually black and are covered with hair. This imposing appearance has caused many myths about tarantulas, including the completely unfounded rumor that they are dangerous or even deadly to humans. They do have a weak venom, but it is much weaker than a bee for example. They are actually quite gentle and only bite humans if they feel menaced. Their venom is not meant to protect them from enemies. Instead tarantulas kill victims that disturb their web by catching them with its legs and killing it with fangs and injecting venom. After death a digestive fluid is vomited onto the animal, and this in conjunction with the venom dissolves the soft parts. This tasty broth is then sucked down by the tarantula. Mating occurs during the fall, and this is the time you usually see a tarantula. The spiders are very long lived, although as is typical in the natural world males fair poorly in the longevity game. Males usually don not live to be more than ten years. They mate for one season and die soon thereafter having completed their essential duty. Females, however, mate and produce young for many seasons and can live to be thirty years old. The female will hold her eggs through the winter. The following May or June she will lay up to 1,000 eggs, which hatch in a month or so. After several days in the burrow, the hatchlings emerge to make their way in the world.

About us Membership Bulletin Bug Club ... Caresheets
Before you buy a tarantula you should think about the conditions it will need to live a long and healthy life. Many tarantulas die in the first few days because their new owner hasn't prepared a suitable home for them. First decide what you want to buy because a small spiderling will obviously require very different accommodation to a full grown specimen. I will assume you are buying a medium-sized tarantula in which case you will need to provide the following.
Pet shops will sell suitable tanks in glass or plastic and the size should not be less than about 25cm by 15cm by 15cm high. If you want to create a tank that tries to provide natural conditions (for example rain forest with leaf litter, logs etc.) then you will need a much larger tank, but you won't see your spider very often! I would suggest that you begin with the simple tank without unnecessary contents so that you can watch your tarantula's activities.
Substrate (Ground cover)
A 2cm layer of Vermiculite should cover the bottom of the tank and a thin layer of chipped bark or cocoa fibre placed on top of that. These can be purchased from most garden centres and should be kept damp to keep up the humidity levels in the tank. Potting compost should not be used as they really need to be sterilised and changed frequently.
