The most popular species of Tarantula kept as pets, and one can see why: inquisitive, personable, powerful yet delicate. An excellent ambassador species to help us all rid ourselves of the fear of all things multi-limbed and exoskeletal. This piece was done as a pet portrait for a local teacher raising the spider among her charges.
