NOTES: 

These species have beautiful tiger striping to them. They are very fast movers when they want to get somewhere so be cautious of that.  In captivity they will typically back a web hideaway close to the ground or partially underground so give them some bark or plants to hide behind. Give them a decent size water dish to keep humidity levels a little higher.
