    Today I went to the reptile expo, I went there planning on getting a Mexican red knee Tarantula, but when I was there I was looking at all the other kinds of tarantulas and I decided on something different. I got a very pretty female pink zebra beauty (Eupalastrus campestratus) she is about 4-5ish inches long and very sweet! I also got a Peru purple pink toe (Avicularia urticans) she is also a female and about 4 inches long, very pretty and so sweet.
    Here is some pictures, hope you all like them!! :)

    They are very easy to care for, the pink zebra beauty (the first pictures) doesn't need a lot of room so about a 5-10 gallon tank is fine for them also they are terrestrial so height wouldn't matter, a few inches a substrate, a hide and a water bowl is about all they need, they do fine at about 75-80 degrees F so room temperature, and 65% humidity. They will eat a few crickets a week, or every few days, and that's about it. The pink toe (one in the second picture) is arboreal so they like to climb so you will need something for them to climb on, and pretty much everything else is the same.
