Caribena versicolor 2cm sling
My C. versicolor climbing everywhere except for into the enclosure during re-house.
Yeah, adult colors are insane but would be even more insane if they kept the blue carapace but still got purple legs.
 
@viper69 yeah, as I'm sure you already know the blue you see on tarantulas isn't even a true blue pigment. As far as I understand it it's just a texture that creates the illusion of blue.
 
@SpaceM Yep I know, I posted about this years ago. I wouldn't use the word texture here. The nanostructure of their setae produces light which is blue.

In fact, in EVERY human culture known to man, past and present, from the color spectrum, BLUE is the last word to come into use a culture's actual language. In some cultures they don't have a word for blue if I recall correctly.
