A stunning spider and always popular with tarantula enthusiasts. They do tend to spend a lot of time sitting in their burrow but when they emerge it is worth the wait. Even when in a burrow they tend to sit with their vivid blue 'fangs' on show. I have a great photo of a Blue Fang that I framed and put in the living room. My family keep sticking it back in my office, much to my annoyance as it is far too pretty to hide away (in my opinion). I wouldn't try handling one of these, they are fast moving and can be rather grumpy when disturbed.
