Welcome to Fear Not Tarantulas, Inc.!
Produced here at Fear Not
This is definitely one of the ‘prettiest’ tarantulas in the hobby. During the early stage of life, it is a beautiful bright metallic blue, fuzzy spiderling, and later becomes pink to red with a green metallic carapace. This is a good species for the beginner if a juvenile or adult is purchased. Spiderlings have some special care guidelines. The colors and fuzzy appearance of this tarantula often win people over to the hobby of collecting tarantulas.
Name and Description History: Aranea hirtipes Fabricius, 1787 Mygale hirtipes C. L. Koch, 1836 Mygale versicolor Walckenaer, 1837 Avicularia versicolor Simon, 1892
New World, Arboreal Size: 5” Growth Rate: Medium Natural Habitat: In the trees and shrubs of Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe in the Caribbean. Housing Needs: Arboreal setup. Higher humidity is needed and can be obtained by misting every few days and adding cups of water to the habitat. Good ventilation is also important, especially for spiderlings. A tall piece of cork bark against a side of the enclosure is good to offer as something to anchor its web on. Temperament and Defensiveness: Versicolors are generally docile, but they do have urticating hairs which can be both kicked off and rubbed against a threat. They can also jump and bolt quite quickly. This genus has a unique defense mechanism by which they will launch excrement when they feel threatened. It can go as far as 2 or 3 feet. They also tend to jump, especially as babies and juveniles, and are particularly sensitive to breezes. If a spiderling escapes, hold your breath as you manipulate it back into the enclosure because the slightest breath will cause it to bolt. Feeding: If hungry, an adult will always take a large dubia right from my tongs.
