I absolutely love this Spider. I just received my 1 inch sling today and can't wait to see it grow into one of these incredible blue creatures. Raising Aboreal T's is a wonderful, fun, and relatively cheap hobby. All my animals were captive bred and by raising these spiders, many discoveries are made that benefit the animal.

    I have been searching for a blue Ornamental for years! I was wondering if you know where I could get one, preferably a baby.

I very much enjoy this one, though I'm having a VERY hard time locating someone who still has spiderlings, they're a popular breed apparently! I DO, however, have 2 Sri Lankan ornamentals, and 2 Chilean rose-hairs, though am wanting something with more color to add to the collection... Awesome spider though!

    I don't know where you live and if you live outside of Canada, I don't know what are the procedures for exporting T. Here's the website of Tarantula Canada inc.: , there's also, in the States, a breeder named John he imports from Tarantula Canada. I don't know if he has ornamental blues. I found him on youtube and he does very good videos on how to take care of T, species specifiacations, etc. On youtube type in Jon3800 and send him a message. There's also on youtube Tarantulaguy1976, I have never spoken with him but I know that he breeds ornamental blues. Hope this helps.

    Good luck!

I currently own a growing 4 maybe (just molted again) fast growing female Sapphire Gooty Tarantula I got from a retailer online in the US. I have had a fear of spiders all my life and wanted to just get over it once and for all. I have a deep respect for this creature and have a decent vertical enclosure and was good for the time she was smaller. I am now coming to the point where she will need to be re housed in a larger enclosure meant for Tarantulas I have found on the internet. Now when I read that to move the gooty to another tank use a paint brush? Has to be a mighty long paint brush for me. I keep getting fears of it jumpin on the brush and b-lining for my hand. Defensive/AGGRESSIVE is all I see. For one I'm not allowed this species and two I am not looking to find out what a spider of this calibre can feel like and going to the emerg and explaining what did it. LOL. Is there any other way I can move this thing? I've been thinking about going outside even so if it goes bad its not loose in the apartment and killing my cats. Anyways any help if anyone looks at this would be greatly appreciated

I recently bought 3 of these from a shop in Plymouth devon called Two by Two. 2 of them were slings and one was a bit bigger the 2 smaller ones were due a molt. One of them molted fine no problems at all the humidity levels were all correct and temperatures all ok. The other small one went for a molt but never managed it and died this morning. When I explained it to the pet shop they weren't interested in it. I only had it about 4 weeks so I am seeking legal advice regarding this. I would never buy anything else from this shop be careful if you are thinking about it! Once you have bought it they just don't care.

    I know what you mean the same happened to me with a theraphosa blondi. How much did your gooty cost>? Sorry about your T mate it sucks.

    I know this was an old post, but I had to say, sorry to hear about your loss, but when you buy an animal such as a tarantula, you have to bear in mind that bad moults do happen sometimes. You can hardly blame the pet shop, especially when 4 weeks had passed, that's ridiculous! What could the pet shop have done to prevent a bad moult that was a month away? Not a lot really.. It's unfortunate, but just one of those things. Don't waste your money on legal action, you'll most likely lose. And if, by some miracle, you win, then the pet shop owner foots the bill for something they had no control over.

These animals are critically endangered, I have no concrete evidence but I would like anyone to let me know if they know. I am wondering if buying or selling these, or any critically endangered species, is legal or not?

    Yes this species is critically endangered in its natural habitat. Those found as pets are most likely captive bred specimens. Some times the endangered status of an animal does impact keeping them in captivity, but even then legalities regarding keeping them is usually often location based. Usually captive bred specimens are fine.

Who are their predators?

    Not sure if this is what you mean but various birds, reptiles or even mites can be predators of these guys.
