Greenbottle blue tarantula
Longevity: ♂ ~ 4 years / ♀ ~ 16 years
Body size without legs (cm/in): ~ 6/2,4
The Chromatopelma cyaneopupescens is another beautiful species from the new world. Blue legs, a greenish carapax and the abdomen with the red hairs make this creature to a very attractive spider. The slings and juveniles show a nice black painting on the orange abdomen, while their carapax sometimes shines golden. Their feeding response is a pleasure for everybody in the hobby. This spider can be very fast but our animals never tried to bite. They´re skittish an try to hide when they feel threatened.
We hold the enclosures dry with temperatures between 25 an 27 °C (~78 °F). They can dig holes, but our Chromatopelmas prefer to spin webs on the ground and between wood rods and cork pieces.
