Omothymus sp. South Thailand aka Valhalla
Omothymus sp. “South Thailand,” aka Valhalla is a stunning arboreal tarantula endemic to the southern Thailand jungles near the Malaysian border. This tarantula is the real standout of the genus: It has a gorgeous viridian carapace, robust black legs, red and orange setae all over, and the distinctive striped abdomen of arboreal tiger tarantulas. Omothymus sp. “South Thailand is a defensive and bold tarantula that reaches a full-grown length of 8” in under 24 months. They do best at temperatures of 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 75 at night. A world first production by the amazing French team of Theraphosids: Wild and Breed, it is an extreme pleasure for us at Artemis Animalia to offer them to United States hobbyists.
