The green-bottle-blue tarantula, known officially as Chromatopelma Cyaneopubescens, is a stunningly vibrant jewel-toned tarantula, earning its name from its resemblance to the muted hues of blown glass bottles. This is a medium-sized tarantula that can reach a leg span of up to 5-6 inches (12-15 cm). Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens is a semi-arboreal species of tarantula, which means that they often live and move around in trees and other elevated surfaces. In the wild, they are often found in dry, scrubby habitats in parts of Venezuela, and are known to build elaborate web structures in trees and bushes to serve as their homes.
These tarantulas are generally considered to be timid, active, often bold and curious in nature. They are known to be relatively fast-moving and agile compared to other tarantula species and seem to enjoy climbing and exploring their environment. These T’s are known for their speed and agility and are considered to be one of the most active and fast-moving beginner species of tarantula.
Green bottle blues are considered easy-care critters perfect for new keepers looking for a more aesthetically-pleasing species, or a species with a little more personality. Greenbottle Blue Tarantulas should be provided with a suitable semi-arboreal enclosure that allows them to climb and explore, with plenty of vertical space, deep substrate, and appropriate hiding places. These arachnids are skittish and will appreciate lots of hiding spots littered around their enclosure. Green-bottle-blue tarantulas require moderate humidity levels of around 60% RH. This can be achieved by misting the enclosure with water, and by providing a shallow water dish for the spider to drink from and to help maintain humidity levels. These tarantulas will thrive with around 3-4 inches of firm substrate for them to happily burrow, however, the substrate should not be kept overly moist.
