FUN FACTS

Pink Toe Tarantulas, like many other species of tarantulas, go through quite the change in appearance as they age. They begin as a bright electric blue baby, & as they grow & molt their exoskeleton, they gradually change colors! The Antilles Pink Toe Tarantula in particular is known for having some of the most elaborate & beautiful colors of any species of spider. As adults, they display blue, purple & burgundy legs, a light burgundy abdomen (hind section), a greenish-turquoise cephalothorax (midsection), & of course, light pink toe tips. Their entire body is also iridescent, capturing even more colors as the light shines on them.
