Brazilian Pink Bloom
Brazilian Pink Bloom


Brazilian Pink Bloom (Pamphobeteus sp. "platyomma")
1", $59 each, NEW BLOODLINE!!
This beautiful South American species is a fantastic spider! Although their common name of "Brazilian Pink Bloom" indicates they are from Brazil, this could be found to be in error since they have in the past been collected from Ecuador. Being that Brazil and Ecuador do not border, their range would therefor have to cross either Peru, or Colombia, or both. As juveniles they emerge from the eggsac at a whopping 1" in legspan, sporting a light smoke grey mixed with a pale pink on the chephalothorax and legs, and have a black and bright red "Christmas Tree" type pattern on the abdomen. With age this fades to a deep rich brown overall, with pink highlights shaped in a split arrow patten covering the eye cluster. Also past the femur on each leg, a light grey leg striping can be seen, especially in freshly molted adults. Once males mature, they are an electric pink overall, and are quite stunning! Pamphobeteus sp. "platyomma" can obtain large legspans reaching in excess of 8", with in combination of it's overall bulkiness, makes this spider in the same class as the largest spiders in the world. Very easy to keep, and rarely skip a meal! In 2005, Swift's Invertebrates hatched this species for the first time in the U.S.!! Don't miss the boat on these beautiful arachnids!
