This beautiful little tarantula is a juvenile of a species known commonly as the AMAZON SAPPHIRE PINK TOE TARANTULA or Avicularia diversipes, found in the wild in the Amazon rainforest in South America.

This little spider has changed a lot in the months since I first acquired him/her! Here are some pictures taken about five months prior to the ones above:

This spider will continue to grow and change colour in the coming months and I am looking forward to sharing its progress here.  It is already beautiful but, having seen how stunning adults of this species are, I can guarantee that you will be amazed at the changes it undergoes! S/he is certainly much more attractive now than she was when I bought him/her; the pictures below were taken then, just a few weeks before the pictures above were taken:
