Ybyrapora diversipes / Amazon sapphire pinktoe
Y. diversipes (former in the hobby A.fasiculata or Avicularia diversipes ) is unique among the Avicularia species from Brazil, being slightly more on defensive/aggressive side then other species in Avicularia genus, prone to flick urticating hair. Their natural habitat is the tropical rainforest, as such they require higher humidity with good ventilation. As spiderlings and juveniles’ diversipes are burst in colors! turquoise, golds, blues, with raspberry red abdominal stripe, it’s a real treat to watch them grow and change colors with every molt. Coming upon adult hood they are bright blue color with chevron markings on the abdomen, reaching 4,5" as adults. Don’t pass these up they are very neat species!
