Avicularia Aversicolor

or the Antilles Pinktoe Tarantula.

the most awesome friggin spider EVAR!

I used to own one.

They are a New World arboreal species and are really tame. They don't mind being handled too much, but are a little finicky and man can they fucking RUN and JUMP.

When they are young they are the coolest electric blue color and then as they molt and grow some green is thrown in and the blue dulls down and some red pops up on the abdomen and some dark purple appears.

Srsly.

A blue, gree, red and purple spider? I named her Lycia.

Here are some pics:

I missed out a lot on her growth because I had to go away to college and I did try to bring her but my roommate threw a fit and I sent her home to my uncle where she lived until a couple years ago when she died.

I still saw her when she was full grown but she was bigger than my hand and I refused to handle her because I'm a pussy.
