Description

es un género de arañas migalomorfas de la familia Theraphosidae, que incluye casi todas las procedentes de Norteamérica y del norte de México y una parte considerable de las de Centroamérica, siendo pocas las descritas en América del Sur. Cerca de 90 especies han sido descritas, pero muchas de ellas no han sido estudiadas adecuadamente y se conoce muy poco de ellas. Son de tamaño grande y, como muchas otras tarántulas de América, poseen pelo urticante; siendo muy dóciles en cautiverio. El estudio taxonómica no ha sido desarrollado por lo que es muy difícil identificar a aquellas que no poseen patrones, especialmente aquellas que son únicamente negras o café.

En cautiverio comen grillos, aún cuando en su ambiente natural comen toda clase de insectos pequeños.

Description from Wikipedia

Tarantulas comprise a group of often hairy and very large arachnids belonging to the Theraphosidae family of spiders, of which approximately 900 species have been identified. This article only describes members of Theraphosidae, although some other members of the same suborder are commonly referred to as "tarantulas". Most species of tarantulas are not dangerous to humans, and some species have become popular in the exotic pet trade.
