AKA Avicularia avicularia. This species is an excellent arboreal species to start with as they are slow moving for an arboreal spider. They're unlikely to bite and they don't flick hair. Instead they have a nasty habit of raising their abdomens and squirting spider crap in your eyes. They are fairly dark overall with pink toes and greenish highlights on the carapace. They have long red hairs around the abdomen and back legs and a bluish tinge to the femur. Pink Toes from different locations can vary in size and colour, some can be a ugly with, dark drab coloration while others can be metallic green or blue.
