Hi. Today we have under our gaze a wonderful representative of tarantula spiders, which is popularly called simply "Laska" or "Horse". Because it is called the "horse tarantula".

Why? Because of its size. The fact is that Parahybana is a representative of a group of 25+, that is, its paw span in an adult state reaches 25 cm.

General information

Lasiodora is a genus of tarantulas from the subfamily Theraphosinae.

This subfamily, in turn, includes many genera of spiders, which can often be found in keeper collections around the world. For example: Acanthoscurria, Aphonopelma, Brachypelma, Chromatopelma, Pamphobeteus, Nhandu, Grammostola, Cyriocosmus, Cyclosternum, and others.

Parahybana is not the only Lasiodora in its genus, there are 32 more species, and among them one, slightly less popular than its sister, but also found in collections: Lasiodora Klugi. She is very similar to Parahibana, however, the hairs on the abdomen are darker, and this is the only difference. Well, and it is also slightly smaller in paws span - up to 20 cm, although their body size is almost the same with the parahibana. But in any case, we are interested in everyone's beloved Horse.

It was first found in 1917 near a town called Campina Grande, located in the Brazilian state of Paraiba. Feel the connection with the name, right? In addition, this spider is endemic to this place, i.e. it can only be found in this state, and nowhere else on the planet.

The horse grows quite quickly, reaching puberty by

2-3 years old in the case of females, and
