About

The Cobalt Blue Tarantula, also known as Cyriopagopus lividus (formerly Haplopelma lividum), is a striking species of tarantula that is native to Southeast Asia, specifically Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos. This beautiful is beloved for its vivid, metallic blue colouration on its carapace, legs, and abdomen, which makes it a popular species amongst tarantula enthusiasts. In the wild, Cobalt Blue Tarantulas are arboreal and live in trees, often constructing silk-lined burrows in hollows or crevices. They are primarily nocturnal and feed on a variety of insects, including crickets, cockroaches, and moths. Females of this species can grow up to a leg span of around 5-6 inches (12.7-15.2 cm), while males are usually smaller, with a leg span of around 3-4 inches (7.6-10.2 cm).

Temperament

As an old-world species, cobalt blue tarantulas are known for their speed, agility, and potent venom, which makes them more challenging to care for than most other species of tarantulas. They are not recommended for beginner tarantula keepers, as they can be skittish, defensive, and prone to biting if they feel threatened or provoked. It is not recommended to handle this species due to its flighty nature and remarkably strong and painful venomous bite.

Care Difficulty

As arboreal spiders, cobalt blue tarantulas should be provided with a tall and spacious terrarium with plenty of climbing structures and hiding places to mimic their natural habitat. These T’s will appreciate an enclosure with plenty of hiding spaces, such as cork-bark, rocks, and plants. Overall, Cobalt Blue Tarantulas require a bit more attention and care than some other species of tarantulas, requiring a warm and humid environment, with temperatures ranging from 75-85°F (24-29°C), and a moderately high level of relative humidity, which should be maintained at around 60-70% RH.
