If you’re looking for a magnificent tarantula species to add to your collection, the Goliath Pinkfoot tarantula may be just what you need. This species is indigenous to Venezuela and requires a large terrarium as an adult. To ensure their comfort, the temperature range should be between 76-84°F with a humidity of 70-80%. The enclosure should be decorated with foliage to simulate their natural environment, but make sure the plants you use have no pesticides on them. For substrate, a mixture of peat moss, vermiculite, coconut fiber, and dirt is recommended, with a depth of at least four inches. They enjoy a bark retreat/hide and a large water dish, although they may not drink from it. The growth rate for this species is medium-fast, and they may attain a leg length of up to eleven inches. As a young tarantula, they are skittish and aggressive, but as an adult, they are more secluded. They are known for kicking urticating hairs, so handling is not recommended. However, even with their intimidating name, the Goliath Pinkfoot tarantula is a peaceful representative of its genus and bites very rarely. It’s important to note that they are a bombardier spider that sheds its stinging hairs to protect itself, so skin contact with the stinging hairs can cause itching. Overall, the Goliath Pinkfoot tarantula is an excellent eater and enjoys a variety of food such as B. dubia roaches, crickets, and even pinkie-mice or house geckos every three months for variety. If you’re a beginner in spider keeping, this species is a great choice since even spiderlings overpower adult chocolate cockroaches. For an adult female, a terrarium with a size of 60 × 40 × 40 cm should be chosen, while BraPlast tins can be used in the beginning. Don’t hesitate to add this magnificent species to your collection!
