Scientific name: Ephebopus cyanognathus

The basics:
The Blue Fang Skeleton Tarantula is a terrestrial species which is native to French Guiana.

Appearance / health:
4-5" DLS (diagonal leg span). This species is an overall brown coloration, with a slight green sheen to the abdomen and bright blueish purple chelicerae, hence the name.

Behavior / temperament:
Fast, skittish and very defensive. These will not hesitate to rear up in threat display or bite if provoked. Handling is not advised.

Medium terrestrial enclosure with ample room to burrow. This is a challenging species to care for, as it requires high humidity, and must be given several inches of substrate to construct a burrow. If the environment is allowed to dry out, the animal will most likely die.

Invertebrates smaller than itself - crickets, roaches, mealworms.

Somewhat challenging.
