Psalmopoeus pulcher, commonly referred to as the "Panama blonde tarantula", is an arboreal spider that can be found in Colombia and Panama. Adult specimens can reach leg spans of up to 6 inches or slightly larger. The species was first described by Russian arachnologist Alexander Ivanovitch Petrunkevitchin in the year 1925.

They prefer drinking from their foliage and enclosure walls, although a water dish should be provided. The recommended diet for this species includes crickets, roaches, and mealworms. Psalmopoeus has a medium-fast growth rate and requires misting a day or two out of the week to provide humidity and drinking water. Good ventilation is a must for their housing setup.

Psalmopoeus reduncus 4" Female
The Psalmopoeus reduncus, commonly known as the Costa Rican Orangemouth, is an arboreal tarantula native to Costa Rica. As a tropical country, Costa Rica experiences year-round warm temperatures and distinct wet and dry seasons. To properly care for this species, it is important to maintain a temperature range of 76°-82°F (24.4°-27.8°C) with a humidity level between 65%-75%. The substrate should be kept slightly dry and watered monthly. As an arboreal species, the Costa Rican Orangemouth requires a vertical enclosure with a hollow branch or cork for climbing and hiding. Adding plants, live or artificial, to the terrarium can encourage the tarantula to venture out of its hide. The substrate should be about one inch (2.54cm) in vials and deli cups for spiderlings and two inches (5.06cm) in terrariums for sub-adult to adult spiders. This tarantula feeds on a variety of insects, including baby crickets, adult crickets, and B. dubia roaches. It has also been observed to eat house geckos in the wild. Water can be provided through a small bottle cap glued to a leaning bark, and misting can be done as well. The Costa Rican Orangemouth is a medium-growing tarantula that can reach a leg length of six inches (15.24cm), although it typically grows to around five inches (12.7cm). While not considered a defensive tarantula, it may bite if provoked and can be fast-moving if startled. It is a seclude species and may not be visible without proper hiding spaces.
