I've been a keeper of Tarantulas for just over 3 years now, it's one of those "addictive" hobbies as there are so many species but the Cobalt Blue is by far one of the most striking to look at and watch.
The pearlescent blue effect, if caught in the right light is breath taking and photographs wonderfully.
Many wikis say that the Cobalt is a highly defensive Taranutla but my experience with Midnight is nothing like it, she is very docile though I do not handle ANY of my Tarantulas, I don't believe in it but when opening her tank she doesn't threat pose or kick, just sits there.
That being said they are lightning fast and when offered prey will take it down like a high-speed train.
Cobalt Blues are a great pet for an advanced keeper, they don't want for much as long as you provide a nice deep habitat for them to make a burrow in.
I very much enjoy looking at her and taking in her gorgeous colouration.
