Giant White Knee Tarantula

Also known as the white knee birdeater or the Brazilian white knee, this is an impressively large species with a correspondingly good temperament. Often to be seen resting in the open, it makes a great display tarantula.

Suitable products for this pet


A firm favourite with the store team. They feed well, grow fast and are easy to deal with. Being a large species they will require a lot of room, but are simple to provide for.

They make an excellent display species, as they will often be found sitting in the open watching the world go by and waiting for their next meal! Females are long lived and have been known to reach 20 years, but as with so many species the males have a much shorter lifespan of approximately 4 years.
