Blue Fang Skeleton Tarantula (Ephebopus Cyanognathus)

Blue Fang450h0011A

4 cm Spiderling.

A popular spider and you can see why even from my spider of 4cm it is colourful. It has a bright neon blue chelicera which is the hair covering its fangs, from which it gets its name. Spiderlings also have a bright green metallic abdomen, brown legs with yellow bands. Females keep their colours until adulthood, males become more brown, losing their vibrancy.  High humidity is critical with this species. They construct impressive burrows which even rise above ground. I have persuaded mine to make a burrow in an artificial vivarium log, which makes it easier to move during cleaning. A lovely spider to own.
