ⓘ Antilles pinktoe tarantula

The Antilles pinktoe tarantula, also known as the Martinique red tree spider or the Martinique pinktoe is popular as a spider pet because of its docile character and unique coloration.

Previously placed in a valuable contribution to the study of the genus, C. versicolor is native to Martinique in the Caribbean sea.

Antilles pinktoe tarantulas arboreal, living in trees. They rotate to develop funnel webs in which they spend most of their time.

K. versicolor spiderlings are bright blue, with black pattern of the tree trunk to the abdomen. As they grow, they gradually lose the blue coloration, the carapace turns green, abdomen red and legs are green with pink paws and cover-purple hairs. Males are usually more brightly colored than females. As in most species of tarantulas the males do not grow as large as women, and their stomachs are smaller than the females, even in proportion to their size.
