The main predators of B. klaasi are armadillos, skunks, snakes, and tarantula wasps. (Biodiverstiy 1996) However, because of the venom and the hairs on the body of the spider, the rate of predation on adults is probably low. Although we find these tarantulas brightly colored, they blend in well with their environment, and so are somewhat cryptic in nature.
