This highly sought after species is one of my favorites. They are brightly colored, don’t usually hide from you, eat very well and are  very easy to care for. Adult GBBs have a vibrant orange abdomen, metallic blue legs, a blue-green carapace and is covered with orange hairs. It is a great experience to raise one up from a spiderling and watch it change  with each molt.  This is an excellent display tarantula!  They are very low maintenance and a pet you can leave for a couple of weeks with no worries. Feeding time is always fun with these guys as they are aggressive eaters and will wrestle and take down prey with great gusto.

Housing: This heavy webber appreciates a little height to their habitat and some taller silk leaves and cork to web on.  

Feedering: This species is a great eater and will eat prey nearly as large as it is.  You can offer large red runner roaches, larger crickets, and mealworms.

New World, Terrestrial
Size: About 6”
Growth Rate: Medium / Fast
Natural Habitat: Venezuela, northern. dry scrub land
Housing Needs: Terrestrial setup.  They are prolific webbers, so if foliage is put in their habitat, it helps if it is plastic so it can act as an anchor for better webbing. They frequently fill their entire habitat with webbing. Dry substrate and low humidity is important for this very hardy species.
Temperament and Defensiveness: This is not an overly aggressive species as mature adults, but juveniles have a lot of spunk.  They are not usually easily spooked.
