• Poecilotheria Metallica - Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantula

Common Name: Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantula
Scientific Name: Poecilotheria metallica

Status: Captive Bred  

Country of origin - India
Habitat: Tree dwelling
Suitability:  Stunning but fast moving and can be aggressive

My Opinion:
All the Poecilotheria tarantulas are large (as far I know) and beautiful but this has to be the most stunning ever! The adults are bright iridescent blue and although the spiderlings start off grey as other Poecilotheria species, they soon become more and more blue in colour as they moult. This species is also quite fast to grow, like a lot of arboreal spiders. However it has been reported that Poecilotheria venom is more potent than most pet species so I would always take care.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

If you would like me to measure the body length of any medium or large spider, please send me an email. I cannot measure the body length of small and juvenile size spiders as they are constantly changing.

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
