The legendary Theraphosa Stirmi (Burgundy Goliath Bird Eater) is a giant of a spider that is a hardy captive. The Theraphosa Stirmi is a New World terrestrial spider that can get up to 12”. While on display, the chestnut brown “fur” stands out to the viewer. For being a heavy bodied tarantula, the Burgundy Goliath Bird Eater is quick and care should be taken while caring for this behemoth of a species.
