Native to Thailand and Myanmar, these gorgeous tarantulas spend most of their lives in their burrows only coming out at night.These nasty tempered tarantulas are very common in the tarantula keeping hobby. In the right light the cobalt blue color really comes out.
Being from Southeast Asia, this species sticks to the humid rainforests.
This particular tarantula in the pictures was an idividual I kept for a while among many other species. They're a really nerve-wracking species to deal with because they're incredibly fast and a bite wouldn't kill you but it would surely be felt. I only saw this girl if I happened to be up and about around 3 A.M. at night.
