Lasiodora parahybana, known in the hobby as the Salmon Pink Birdeater is a New World Terrestrial Tarantula endemic to North Easter Brazil. This species is argued to be the 3rd or 4th largest tarantula in the world growing anywhere from 9-11 inches with most only being about 8-9 inches. The Salmon Pink Birdeater is a very fast growing tarantula and can reach adult sizes in as little as 2 years and have a lifespan up the about 15 years.

Females can produce sacs that have anywhere between 1200-3000 eggs. Though this tarantula is large, its venom is not known to be medically significant, so the fangs would be potentially more painful than the venom.

This species does possess urticating hairs , like most New World tarantulas, and I find this species hairs to nearly as uncomfortable as the T. blondi or Brachypelma boehmi. Even as a juvenile, while rehousing this T, it kicked hairs that caused itching and swelling on my fingers for a week or two.
