Scientific Name: Omothymus violaceopes
Common Name(s): Singapore Blue
Country of Origin: Singapore, Riau Islands in Indonesia and the southern states of Peninsular Malaysia.
Temperament: The combination of speed, length, potent venom, and lack of urticating hairs as a defense, make this tarantula tough for new keepers to deal with.
Notes: Adults can reach 9+ inches, making this possibly the largest arboreal tarantula in the world, although most people believe that title goes to Lampropelma "borneo black". L. violaceopes does have sexual dimorphism at the adult level. Males tend to be an olive green, or yellow and quite a bit smaller. The natural predators of this spider are the Tokay Gecko, bats, and monkeys.
