Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula
- Northern Chile, Bolivia, and Argentina
- Small lizards
- Young snakes
As a defensive mechanism, these tarantulas will rub the hairs on their back legs loose and kick the irritating hairs toward the attacker.
Like all tarantulas, a Chilean Rose Hair tarantula will go through an extensive molt when it outgrows its skin. It will shed its entire skin as well as the linings of its mouth, respiratory organs, stomach, and sexual organs.
