A rare male Tarantula species

Postby laurence leong » Mon Jul 09, 2012 6:48 pm

This black species is rare, and it is rarer still to find a large male crawling in the open, presumably looking for a female. When disturbed it raises its two front legs and fangs to deter its enemies. Otherwise, it is a good natured creature, though the 6 inch size of this individual looks itimidating.

I wonder if this Tarantula is the one often referred to as the Singapore Blue Tarantula. Well taken shots Laurence. For more who suffered from Spidey Phobia, you did an excellent take of your worst fear, Lemon.
