Scientific name: Idiothele mira

The basics:
The Blue Footed Baboon Tarantula is a terrestrial species which is native to South Africa.

Appearance / health:
3" DLS (diagonal leg span).

Behavior / temperament:
This is a small and unique baboon species. They construct a trap door style burrow for catching prey. They are fast and skittish, but not unusually defensive, especially for an old world species.

Small to medium terrestrial enclosure with ample substrate in which to burrow. Very easy to care for. These prefer a mostly dry environment, and prefer to construct elaborate burrows, so adequate substrate is a must.

Invertebrates smaller than itself - crickets, roaches, mealworms.

Easy to breed
