Scientific Name: Psalmopoeus irminia
Common Name(s): Venezuelan Suntiger
Country of Origin: Venezuela
Temperament: This is a very fast moving spider. It is what I would consider a defensive tarantula, and will bite if provoked. I own five different species in the Psalmopoeus Genus and this is the most defensive of them all. This species is more defensive than any Poecilotheria species I own (14).
Notes: This tarantula sports a beautiful black coat with a tiger striped abdomen. On the lower part of each leg is a orange lightening bolt, making this a handsome tarantula. This is a hardy and easy T to care for, but because of its speed, and defensiveness I would recommend any Poecilotheria species before you purchase one of these. What the Heteroscodra maculata is for old world arboreals the Venezuela Sun Tiger is for New World arboreals. This species is not recommended as a beginner tarantula. It is also a prolific webber too.
