The spider is believed to be a pink toe tarantula which according to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute are native to the rainforests of South America.
The active predators prey on a variety of invertebrates as well as small vertebrates like mice, frogs and lizards.
Females have a leg span of 11-13 centimetres, while males average closer to 9 centimetres.
