Description

Size/Age:

Sub-adult and mature Cobalt Blue Tarantulas, Haplopelma lividum, are beautifully eye-catching spiders with a metallic blue colouration, primarily seen in the tropical locales of Southeast Asia, like Myanmar and Thailand. Each spider is unique, displaying varying shades and intensities of blue across their legs, cephalothorax, and upper abdomen. The underside typically features darker tones of grey or black. While these species are loved for their vibrant colours, it’s their temperament that truly sets them apart. Highly defensive and somewhat aggressive, these tarantulas are better suited for experienced handlers who prefer observing rather than interacting with their pets. Mature females usually sport a leg span of up to 6 inches, making them quite substantial in size. They also outlive their male counterparts, with lifespans ranging between 10 to 15 years for females and 3 to 6 years for males. Their natural environment is  humid, so these conditions should be replicated in captivity, at between 70-80%, achievable through regular misting and the addition of a water dish. A temperature range of 75-85°F (24-29°C) is recommended, using devices like heat mats if necessary. This is a sub-adult old world species,  originating from the Eastern Hemisphere. It’s a fossorial tarantula, which means it’s primarily a burrowing species that prefers to stay deep underground, creating burrows. The Cobalt Blue has quite potent venom compared to many other tarantula species. Due to their strong venom and defensive temperament, these animals should not be handled and are better suited for more experienced tarantula keepers.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.
