Caribena versicolor

Caribena versicolor (Walckenaer, 1837), also known as the “Martinique pinktoe tarantula”, “Antilles pinktoe tarantula” and “Martinique red tree spider”, is a very stunning bird spider due to its coloration from Martinique.
Previously placed in the genus Avicularia, C. versicolor is native to Martinique in the Caribbean Sea.
Antilles pinktoe tarantulas are arboreal (tree-dwelling). They spin elaborate funnel webs in which they spend most of their time.
Spiderlings of C. versicolor are bright blue, with a black tree trunk pattern on the abdomen. As they grow, they gradually lose their blue coloration; the carapace turns green, the abdomen red, and the legs turn green with pink tarsi and a covering of purple hairs. Males usually are slightly more brightly colored than females. As in most tarantula species, males do not grow as large as females, and their abdomens are smaller than those of females, even in proportion to their size.
Caribena versicolor lives in tropical warm area, with monsoon periods. Temperatures almost daily reach levels up to 28°C.
