In the hobby we use the acronym GBB to refer to this species. This is one of the prettier tarantulas you'll find, with a hue of bright greens, blues and reds. Slow growing though, and may not get full colouration until almost adult - so if you're buying a spiderling prepare to be patient.
Very easy to care for and not super aggressive - but not completely docile either, so if you're going to handle, be very careful. I find them to be semi arboreal - mostly spending their time on the ground but they do seem to like to climb and explore the entire space they're given. They're quite a confident spider and can very frequently be seen out in the open.
