Lasiodorides striatus

Goliath Stripe Knee Tarantula

Temperment: defensive
Habitat: terrestrial/burrowing, tropics
Care: intermediate keepers

A large impressive spider, the Goliath Stripe Leg is a relatively easy to keep species. They are not nervous or aggressive, rather they are deliberate in their movements and slow to anger. This is not to say they will not strike when molested, but when treated with care can be easy to deal with. Adults should be fed full-sized crickets, roaches or pinky mice, smaller crickets are often not recognized as prey by these massive spiders.
