GREEN BOTTLE BLUE TARANTULA
The Greenbottle Blue Tarantula is a native of Venezuela and has some of the most dramatic coloring of any spider species. Adult greenbottles have metallic blue legs, a blue-green carapace and a vibrant orange abdomen.
These tarantulas live in webbed burrows under bushes and tree roots in desert areas of northern Venezuela, near Paraguana. The entrance is often extended with webbing, sometimes resembling a tunnel. These webs may protect the entrance from the harsh desert climate, also acting as a trap for insects.
