Description

Scientific Name: Chilobrachys sp. Vietnam Blue

Common Names: Asian Blue Smokey | sp. Vietnam Blue

Not for beginners. Chilobrachys is another fast growing, super-fast moving old world tarantula species. Being fossorial, it’s unfortunately a pet hole and it will seldom venture outside of it’s burrow, except late at night or when on the prowl for a meal. This species is the .sp Vietnam Blue variation with a light velvety brown appearance that has sheens of blue hidden beneath.

Males have sexual di-morphism and look completely different to the females after their ultimate molt. These pack a nasty bite, a friend was recently tagged by one and experienced very little at first, but hours later, heavy pain and cramping. 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…

The enclosure setup for Chilobrachys dyscolus should have at least 15 to 20cm of substrate to allow burrowing, as well as your rudimentary water dish.
