In the wild, these tarantulas are ground-dwelling creatures, creating burrows in the soil to serve as their homes. They are opportunistic predators, feeding on various invertebrates such as insects, small arthropods, and occasionally small vertebrates. The Brazilian Salmon Pink Tarantula is a species of significant interest to researchers and enthusiasts due to its size, beauty, and captivating behavior.
