Introducing the crown jewel of any arachnid collection - the adult male Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantula. Revered for its mesmerizing beauty, this spider is as captivating as a rare sapphire, making it a must-have for any serious enthusiast.
The Gooty Sapphire, known scientifically as Poecilotheria metallica, boasts an enchanting electric blue hue not typically found in the natural world. Adult males come with an added charm, as their iridescent blue coloration becomes even more prominent, almost metallic, as they mature. They are a sight to behold at about 7-8 inches in leg span!
The Gooty Sapphire Ornamental is an arboreal tarantula, and as such, its enclosure should be vertically oriented with plenty of places to climb and hide. The setup should mimic its natural forest habitat with a temperature range of 70-80°F and humidity at about 60-70%.
Their diet primarily consists of various insects, such as crickets and mealworms. Adult males eat less frequently than their juvenile and female counterparts, so monitoring feeding habits is essential.
Please note the Gooty Sapphire Ornamental is known for its speed and defensive nature, making it more suitable for experienced keepers. While its venom is potent, it is generally not life-threatening to humans, but the bite can be painful and cause severe discomfort.
Illuminate your collection with the Adult Male Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantula, a living gem that genuinely encapsulates the remarkable diversity of the arachnid world. If you are ready for the responsibility, this amazing creature can bring an unparalleled dimension to your hobby!

I've never had a better experience with the customer service department than I have had with Reptiles N Critters. My baby Suriname Horned Frog arrived so quickly and in great health. From this great experience, I will be a life-long customer. They went above and beyond.
