The brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantula (Lasiodora parahybana) is a tarantula from north-eastern Brazil and considered to be the third largest tarantula in the world (behind Theraphosa blondi and Theraphosa apophysis; however, the largest spider in terms of leg-span is the giant huntsman spider).

It was discovered and described in 1917 by Cândido Firmino de Mello-Leitão, in Paraíba, where the tarantula is endemic. They are popular pets in the tarantula hobby due to their large size and readiness to breed. They are also considered to be 'docile'.
