🔥 The Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantula, is the only species in the genus to be covered in blue hair

  1. The blues here are slightly oversaturated. Also, this thing is super pretty but probably the worst Tarantula to keep. Lightning fast, arguably the venom with the most lasting damage out of all species, and very specific needs.

  2. I am all in for fun english names, but in this case I prefer latin - Poecilotheria metallica. For the sake of brevity.

  3. Seeing this reminded me of the fact that some people sweat blue. Like their sweat is literally blue. Definitely not as intense blue, but blue nonetheless.

  4. You should start with some calmer new world species! This one's bite is medically significant. If you really really want some blue tatantulas you could check out some pterinopelma sazimai, thrixopelma longicolli, or chromatopelma cyaneopubescens to name a few. Caribena versicolors are also blue as babies! As adults they are green, purple, and red. Tarantulas can be very interesting and long-lived pets, I keep 17 of my 19 by my work desk and I usually see a few out during the day. They're my little work buddies.

  5. Image is somewhat oversaturated. Males can be very bright blue, but females are typically more subdued.
