ANTILLES PINKTOE (adult) (Avicularia versicolor)  - ©petcenter.info
Note: Thanks to @jadeneternal it came to my attention that the previous post of the cobalt blue tarantula was mis-identified, it was actually a juvenile version of this spider. I was going to just repost the same photo but the adult is beautiful as well. I’ll post the juvenile in a sec. If you see something misidentifed, PLEASE let me know. Thanks!
The Antilles pinktoe tarantula, also known as the Martinique Red Tree Spider or the Martinique Pinktoe, is native to Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Caribbean Sea, but is a popular spider pet due to its docile character and unique coloration.
Antilles pinktoe tarantulas are arboreal (tree-dwelling). They spin elaborate funnel webs in which they spend  most of their time. In captivity, cage height is much more important  than floor space. Decor consists of tree branches or cork pieces to  which the spider can attach its web.
