  • Widely hailed one of the best beginner tarantulas, this species is by far the most beautiful starter species.
  • Generally docile in demeanor, but will bolt or flick hair if startled.
  • This species likes a dry enclosure and plenty of web anchor points, giving potential for some really cool and easy to maintain environment ideas.
  • One of the more fun to watch transformations, this species goes from orange and black patterned to dark teal and orange as adults

Name: Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens or “Green Bottle Blue” has greek and latin roots meaning “colored” “foot” “cyan/greenish blue” and “fuzzy hair” making its scientific name one of the most accurately descriptive of any tarantula species.

Recommended Enclosure Size: The C Cyaneopubescens is a terrestrial spider that will mostly stay above ground, and some do consider “semi arboreal” as in the wild they do like to hang out in low lying plants and live mostly in web tunnels of their own build. Their enclosure should have enough room horizontally for three times the spider’s diagonal leg span going either way, and be tall enough to provide 2” of substrate. While these guys do like to hang out a bit above the surface if given the chance, due to their heavy terrestrial build, it is still not recommended to give more than twice the spider’s diagonal leg span for head space above the surface of the substrate.

Temperature: They prefer it warm, between 78-82 degrees F usually, but have been shown to thrive at average room temperature of 72 degrees F.

Humidity: around 60%, they like their substrate pretty dry, as slings you can provide a small water dish in the form of a tattoo ink cup or a shallow water bottle lid.

Size: At the time of sale C Cyaneopubescens are at least .5” diagonal leg span.

Age: C cyaneopubescens sold by Josh’s Frogs are at least 3 months old at time of sale. Females of this species can live up to 12-14 years of age, with males having a significantly shorter lifespan of about 4 years.

Feeding: At the time of purchase C Cyaneopubescens sold by Josh’s Frogs are eating ¼” crickets. As they age and molt their feeder insects should too, with the prey item being the size of the spider’s carapace or smaller. Spiderlings should be fed every 4-7 days, adults every 7-10. Never offer food to a spider less than a week after its most recent molt.

Sexing: Due to age, C Cyaneopubescens spiderlings sold by Josh’s Frogs are sold as unsexed. Specimens of 2.5”-3” will be able to start being accurately sexed. The most accurate method will always be molt sexing. The molt of a female tarantula, between the top set of book lungs will have a slit with spermatheca and a uterus externus, which on a smaller spider will just be a flap that moves when manipulated with a toothpick or a pin. A male tarantula will have a much more plain slit that will not budge with attempts to manipulate it.

Color/Pattern: As spiderlings they are bright orange with black patterning on the abdomen and a starburst pattern on the carapace. As adults they are cyan with a bright orange abdomen.

Social Behavior: This species should be housed solitarily, any attempt at cohabitation will likely end with cannibalism.

Breeding: Males and females of sexual maturity can be put in the same enclosure briefly for the purpose of mating. Ideally both will be fairly freshly molted and well fed. The male and female should be separated fairly immediately after insertion is observed (the male will generally initiate separation on his own after he has had success) or if the spiders are acting less than receptive or aggressive towards each other.

Natural Range: Northern Venezuela
