Grammostola pulchripes has hives but is one of the calmest and most docile tarantula species – characteristics that make it an excellent choice for beginners. It is a very showy tarantula, with long light-colored hairs throughout the body and golden stripes on the legs, especially on the "knees", hence the name "Golden Knee". Juveniles tend to dig small hiding places in the substrate in which to stay hidden long enough, but over time, becoming adults, they will give up this behavior. Males generally have a lifespan of 5-7 years and females can reach up to 20 years. These tarantulas reach a total size (legspan) of 19-22 cm.

It is not recommended to handle tarantulas, especially by those without experience.
