The Brazilian Blue is a New World Tarantula native to the Bahia and Minas Gerais regions of Brazil. Due to habitat loss they are considered an endangered species, which is why ours are responsibly captive bred. 

They like to burrow so providing them with deep enough substrate is imperative.

As juveniles or in pre-moult, they have a greyish/blue appearance, but once they have moulted they are a striking iridescent blue.  

Being New Worlds, they can be defensive and will kick hairs if they feel threatened, and are very fast so we do not recommend these for beginners.
