From k8inverts, February 2017, about 1 inch toe to toe

This species is a terrestrial, new world tarantula originating in Northern Chili with urticating setae on abdomen. At maturity about 6 inches DLS (diagonal leg span).  Life expectancy reportedly 20-25 years for females and males about 5 years

Temperament is unreliableAt one feeding time it will calmly take the cricket and the next it may jump on the tongs with all eight legs. I have in no way provoked it. Quite amusing as an immature but may not be at six inches.

Spiderling kept at 60-65% humidity and room temperature ~74°- 77°
Adults at 40-55%? 55-65? These humidity suggestions differ from author to author.
