As we all know Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens as know as called "GBT"
Its an is an extremely docile animal, very cute, and I think that can not fail in the collection of a Hobbylist...
Appearance - Very Colourfull, "baby" sling has a spectacular orange and black pattern in abdomen
Easy to Keep - well i´ve ordered some babys from a breeder and it took a week to arrive, they were perfect they are easy to care, they make a lot of webs soo its easy when it comes feeding time :)
Temperament - Extremely Docile animals, they usually get on defensive position, i know that Brachypelma are known for being the most docile spiders in hobby, but i never got any problems with my GBT´s
- Health not much to say, they are easy to care and never got any problems with them so i will give it a 4, becouse sometime they refuse the food :D
- Easy to Handle - as all spiders in hobby it´s not recommended to handle
"Urticating hair" and "allergic reactions not only the tarantula itself, but also to their venom" i wil give it a 3/5 becouse i dont recommend to handle them, but i do handle them...
- Activity level and Visibility - well, as i said they are one of the most pretty species i know, sometimes they dont stop, and sometimes they keep on the burrow
without any doubt, if I were to recommend a tarantula for beginners, was GreenBottle Blue Tarantula! Easy to maintain, colors breathtaking, really easy to handle, perfect! i will leave a photo with my baby
