Common Names: Green Bottle Blue Tarantula | Also called the GBB
Scientific Names: Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens
A personal favorite. This bird spider is nothing less than rewarding to own. Even as a sling, this spider displays amazing coloring with a golden carapace, tiger patterned opisthosoma / abdomen and pink legs with what look like little black boots. It’s not shy, so makes for a great display tarantula and eats well, so it grows at a good pace too. It also creates the most amazing webbed hammocks and tunnels that it uses to detect prey, making it’s enclosure a showpiece on it’s own.
