This Tarantula species is spectacularly stunning. It's vibrant colors and high level activity make this an excellent display pet. However, this spider can be skittish, so it's not advised to handle it. They can bite repeatedly as well as 'fling' their hairs in defense. That being said, it's one of the most colorful species available. I bought mine at a reptile show in Anaheim, California for 2 for $45 for Spiderlings. Definitely one of my favorite's, and I'm not the only one. They are becoming more common and readily available due to the demand for them.
