|Pink Zebra Beauty|
The Pink Zebra Beauty (Eupalaestrus campestratus) is a terrestrial tarantula native to Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. It is known for its docile and tolerant temperament and is therefore an attractive pet tarantula. It is brownish-black and has yellow striped markings near its "knees", resembling the Chaco Golden Knee, although its maximum leg-span of six inches makes it significantly smaller. It is slow moving and generally considered hardy in captivity. Its docile nature makes it an ideal pet tarantula for a beginner if you are looking to get involved with one. Not quick to bite or "urticating hair", these species are among the top recommended tarantulas for beginner hobbyist.
