Caribena versicolor.
As someone who has always has avoided new world species because of the urticating hairs - this makes me incredibly envious. Though I hear some new worlds will not flick hairs but rather they're there if a predator touches them?
 
@Ciri C. versicolor and the Avicularia sp. have to physically make contact with you to get you with their urticating hairs. So just don't handle. Now, get yourself one of these precious floofs! :D
 
@RezonantVoid Floof Alert Level - MAXIMUM FLOOF ENGAGED. This is so going to be my next tarantula. I love this color pattern. Is care trickier than some of the more hardier genera like Brachys?
 
@PidderPeets Thanks for this information this is exciting to hear. This is definitely now on my wish-list I'll have to pick up a sling in the next Toronto Reptile Expo!!!
