Brazilian Pink Toe Tarantula Terrarium
"This 1/12th scale (1" = 1') miniature tarantula is the most realistic tarantula I've made to date. The photos do not do him justice. When seen in person, people often ask me if he is, or was at one time, alive. Please note: No spiders were harmed in the making of this highly detailed miniature replica!
The tarantula is made of polymer clay and flocked for realism. He has glass eyes. He is approximately 1/2" in diameter, scale for a full-grown tarantula. His little home measures 2 1/8" long by 1 1/8" deep by 3/4" high and is complete with sand, greenery, half-log hideout, and filled 'water' dish.
He posed for the second photo before being glued into his home as these little guys are extremely difficult to photograph inside their plastic vivariums."
