Scientific Name: Chilobrachys sp. Cambodia Blue
Common Names: Cambodian Earth Tiger | Cambodia Blue
This species of Chilobrachys dyscolus is the .sp Cambodia variation with ash blue and brown velvety tones over most of the body and is very similar to the Chilobrachys sp Vietnam blue species, except that this one grows much larger.
Chilobrachys is a fast growing, super-fast moving old world tarantula species with a very cheeky attitude, with the Chilobrachys huahini – Asian Fawn Tarantula often being compared to the famous Pterinochilus murinus – Orange Baboon Tarantula or OBT for aggressiveness and attitude.
Being fossorial, these are unfortunately a pet hole, rarely seen and it will seldom venture outside of it’s burrow except late at night or when on the prowl for a meal. Chilobrachys pack a nasty bite, a friend was recently tagged by one and experienced very little at first, but hours later, heavy pain and cramping as well as the sensation that he has water running under his skin. The victim reported that touching anything felt like you were slamming your hand on a table, all skin was hyper sensitive. Take care when working with old world species…
Males have sexual di-morphism and look completely different to the females after their ultimate molt. The enclosure setup for Chilobrachys dyscolus sp. should have at least 15 to 20cm of substrate and structures to allow for burrowing and webbing, as well as your rudimentary water dish.
