Scientific Names: Caribena versicolor (Previously: Avicularia versicolor)

Considered to be one of the most beautiful showpieces in the tarantula hobby with it’s vibrant hues of color. Previously named Avicularia versicolor, the Martinique Pink-toe remains an absolute favorite of many keepers, especially fans of arboreal species. Another absolute must for any collection.

Although a little more cheeky than it’s pink-toe cousins, this tarantula remains docile and a total pleasure to own. Absolutely adorable to watch as beautiful fluffy blue slings, they build silken hammocks as high as they can, from which they eat and grow rather well.

Take care when working in their enclosures, we aren’t the first to have experienced one of these little delights jumping on to you while you work, don’t panic, they usually jump right off again as they don’t seem to like human trees.
