A more difficult spider to care for that also belongs to this category is the Cobalt Blue Spider (Haplopelma lividum), known for its beautiful blue coloring. While there are many beautiful and brightly colored tarantulas, the Cobalt Blue is one of the most well-known and most unique. What do you think about owning tarantulas?
