-Thailand Bamboo Tarantula-

Taksinus bambus


-Beautiful semi-arboreal/semi-fossorial spiders restricted to the Tak province of Western Thailand. These spiders display unique behaviors and habitat preferances. Spiderlings will actively burrow and seem to prefer remaining close to and under substrate. As they grow they begin to develop more arboreal behaviors and at night, are quite active in vertical spaces. 


-Found in warm, humid, tropical forests. These spiders demonstrate a unique relationship with bamboo of the genus Gigantochloa and carpenter bees of genus Xylocopa. The bees build nesting galleries with the culm of large bamboo stalks, and after the larvae emerge these cavities are often abandoned. Taksinus bambus are oppurtunistic inhabitants of these empty nesting chambers and will utilize silk to fortify the structure and smooth the openings. 


-Adult size for mature females is approximately 4-5 inches diagonal legspan.
