Avicularia avicularia - WC - Missing Legs - Common Pinktoe
These tarantulas are being sold as "unsexed", as they have not molted while in our care. If they molt before they are sold, and we are able to determine the sex, the listing will be updated.
The missing leg on each tarantula will grow back on the next molt.
- This New World Arboreal is native from Costa Rica to Brazil and the southern Caribbean.
