• Monocentropus Balfouri - Socotra Island Blue Tarantula

Common Name: Socotra Island Blue
Scientific Name: Monocentropus balfouri

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Socotra (an island off Africa)
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Calm for an African tarantula!

My Opinion:
If the Socotra Island Blue was summed up in one word it would be 'stunning'. This spider has amazing colours, a creamy tan body, metallic blue/silver carapace and bright blue legs. They are highly regarded in the tarantula hobby and many people swear that they can be kept communally (a real bonus). I have no experience of this and the price they cost me, I have no intention of trying it out! They like to build extensive webs and quite often hide in them. When challenged they may threaten a little but prefer to retreat and rarely seem aggressive.
