6 – 7 CM
Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens is certainly one of the most beautiful tarantulas in the world. The coloration of the spiders changes over time from wasp-like pink markings to blue tarantula with gilded abdomen (abdomen). Who can resist that?
The quiet and non-aggressive tarantula is shrub-dwelling and likes to lay its hiding place under a piece of wood, but also on branches. For an adult Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens a terrarium with the dimensions 30 × 30 × 30 cm is recommended. This tarantula species lives on the edge of the desert areas of the Médanos National Park. Therefore, a humidity of 50 to 65% is sufficient. We mix the forest humus-sand substrate ourselves in a ratio of 1:1.
The crepuscular and nocturnal spider likes to appear at this time of day, exploring its surroundings. Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens like to take branches or cork barks that are placed diagonally in the terrarium to build their living web in it or under it. They are not choosy with their food. Everything is accepted, which corresponds to their size. Leftover food should be removed immediately. Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens is a very peaceful and calm species, which is also recommended for beginners.
