The Chilobrachys fimbriatus (Indian Violet) is an Old World fossorial species. This is a courageous and defensive tarantula and should be kept by more experienced hobbyists. The abdomen of the Chilobrachys fimbriatus has black horizontal markings that seem to be drawn on with precision. The same dark black can be seen on the femurs.
