Greenbottle Blue Tarantula


Other name(s):
 Green Bottle Blue Tarantula;
GBB; Venezuelan Bottlebrush Tarantula;
Venezuelan Greenbottle Blue Tarantula;
Orange Bottlebrush Tarantula

Scientific name: Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens

Habitat:  The Greenbottle Blue Tarantula is a colorful New World terrestrial species which is native to desert and scrubland areas of northern Venezuela. GBB's dig burrows under tree roots and bushes and create webs at their burrow entrance, which serve both as protection and also to catch prey.

The Greenbottle Blue Tarantula was first exported from Venezuela for the pet trade in 1993. They are a desirable species because of their handsome coloration, though they are a quick tarantula, and will throw urticating hairs when frightened or agitated.
