Description:

This is one of the stockier looking arboreal tarantulas.  It is quite well designed to blend in with its natural habitat.  If you see pictures of this species in the wild, you can hardly see them on the trees they inhabit.   They are a bit darker when young, staring off as an olive green.  With age they take on a light grey color with varying shades of black to grey mottled spots.

This species, though shy, can be very quick. They are known to occasionally jump out at anyone doing maintenance in their habitat though, so care should be taken. This tarantula likely to bite if provoked.
