Description: Acanthoscurria geniculata 1841 (Koch) Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Arthropoda Class: Arachnida Order: Araneae Family: Theraphosidae Subfamily: Theraphosinae Genus: Acanthoscurria This is my adult tarantula - she is female. Her name is Acanthoscurria geniculata and this species is commonly knows as Brazilian whiteknee tarantula or Whitebanded Tarantula. This one is really big one and I fed her using one mouse. She striked quickly and the mouse had no chance to survive. In this video you can see how this tarantula cought the mouse and then how it looked when she was eating it. It took more than 33 hours to eat the whole mouse. I reccomend you to read everything and consider if you want to see brutal (but natural) process of tarantula's eating. Music was composed by me using Stage piano Yamaha NP-V80. I own the rights to any music or shots. Check my profile/channel to find another tarantula or some other interesting and unusual animals/pets. Hope you enjoyed and more videos coming soon.
