These tarantulas are an absolute stunner when out on display. But don’t be fooled, they are very fast and known to be very defensive. These tarantulas have a bold striping on the abdomen and a maroon to violet coloring on the abdomen and carapace. Slings start out more maroon in color, and as they grow they turn more of a violet color. Once males mature, the legs stay a violet tint instead of turning black (as the female in the photo above.) They are also very prolific webbers and will create extravagant tunnel systems and will web everything in their enclosures.
