Avicularia versicolor Info

I learned a few new tidbits about the Avicularia versicolor (Antilles Pinktoe) today! Verrrry interesting stuff.

  • They can actually jump 30cm or even higher!
  • I knew they had urticating hairs like other tarantulas, but I didn't know that they are unable to kick those hairs off like the terrestrial tarantulas we have in the states.
  • I also now know that males tend to have brighter coloration than females.

This particular bundle of tidbits brought to you from Wikipedia.
