Quantity in Basket:
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds
The Cobalt Blue is one of the more sought after tarantulas, primarily for its definite and striking metallic blue coloration. This is a spider with an attitude and is recommended for an experienced tarantula keeper. They are indeginous to the jungles of Southeast Asia. They are deep burrowers that require high humidity to thrive in captivity.
Tarantula Habitat and Care
Basic tarantula care for all species is fairly similar. There are two main types of tarantulas: arboreal and terrestrial.
The two do require different setups, but the setups all require the same basic items. All tarantulas eat the same things so
their care varies little. Overall, tarantulas are a very easy pet to raise.
The basic tarantula setup:
Tarantulas do not like or need artificial light. For arboreal species you need a taller tank and fill it 1/3
of the way up with substrate (at least 4 inches) then you add in the fake plants and hiding places and place the
water bowl in a dugout where it will not be easily spilled. Make sure that the lid of your aquarium is on tight
because tarantulas are strong enough to move them if they are not locked down!
Tarantulas do not need any heat sources either. They do well at room temperature.
For terrestrial species you can get longer/wider tanks and fill them about ½ way full of substrate. They like
to burrow. Then you place hiding places about in a way that you like and bury the water dish. Again, make sure
that you lock the lid down!
Tarantulas do not eat a lot, but make sure there is a cricket or two available in their cage for consumption.
Other insects can be used, but crickets are readily available and easy for tarantulas to digest.
Tarantulas are primarily opportunistic, preying on a variety of small animals like crickets, moths, cockroaches and small vertebrates for their sustenance.
In captivity Tarantulas will fare well a diet of domestic crickets. You should not feed your tarantula a prey item that is larger than approximately half its size. Coconut husk ground up into a soil is a great base for your tank.
Temperatures for most species needs to be between 75-85 Fahrenheit. Humidity at its lowest should be 50-60%, but many require higher humidity
