The Brazilian Bronze Tarantula, scientifically known as Dolichothele exilis, is a medium sized and relatively docile species of tarantula. This species is native to the rainforests of Brazil, where it spends most of its life hidden in burrows. 

Origin: The Brazilian Bronze Tarantula is native to Brazil, where it can be found in the rainforests and grasslands.

Temperature: The ideal temperature range for keeping a Brazilian Bronze Tarantula is between 24-28°C (75-82°F). They can tolerate a range of temperatures, but it's essential to avoid extreme fluctuations, which can be stressful for the spider.

Housing: To keep a Brazilian Bronze Tarantula, you will need an enclosure that is at least 30cm (12 inches) long, 20cm (8 inches) wide, and 20cm (8 inches) tall. The enclosure should have a secure lid to prevent the spider from escaping, and it should be lined with a substrate such as peat moss or coconut fiber. You can also add branches, leaves, and other natural elements to create a suitable hiding place for your spider.

Feeding: In captivity, the Brazilian Bronze Tarantula is a carnivorous species, and its diet consists of live prey such as crickets, roaches, and mealworms. They should be fed two to three times a week, depending on their size and activity level.

Lifespan: The Brazilian Bronze Tarantula has a relatively long lifespan for a spider, with males living for around five years, and females living up to 15 years in some cases.

Behavior and Personality: Brazilian Bronze Tarantulas are generally docile and calm, making them a popular choice for beginner tarantula enthusiasts. However, they can be defensive if they feel threatened, and their venom is potent, so it's best to handle them with care.
