Similar in many ways to its slightly more well-known cousin, Heteroscodra maculata, Stromatopelma calceatum is another large African arboreal with quick movements and a defensive temperament. Larger specimens have black speckling and a distinct greenish cast. If you like H. maculata, arboreal tarantulas, and tarantulas with capacity to bolt, you’ll appreciate S. calceatum. No holding this species please, intermediate to advanced keepers only.
