Dolichothele Diamantinensis Size: 3"-4" Growth Rate: Medium-fast Natural Habitat: Brazil Housing Needs: Terrestrial setup. life span males 5-7 years females 10-15 years From spiderlings to adulthood, Dolichothele diamantinensis (Brazilian Blue Dwarf Beauty Tarantula) shows iridescent metallic blues, greens, and red. This is quite a fun tarantula to own! They are both bold and skittish. While raising this species, we have noticed that they seem to know the routine of feeding. As soon as we open their enclosure, they will pop up with great curiosity. They sometimes dart back in their webbing only to reemerge seconds later as if they just can’t stand not knowing what’s going on. These tarantulas are full of personality and attitude. Feeding time is quite an exhibition – they are fast and take down good sized prey. I don’t know of anyone who has ever regretted adding one or two of these to their collection!
