The Singapore Blue(Lampropelma violaceopes) is a large, colorful arboreal Tarantula found in Malaysia and Singapore. They can measure up to a 25cm leg span and are popular as pets because of their color. There is a distinct difference between the two sexes as the male is olive green with faint yellow leg striation. Before sexual maturity both sexes will be a purplish-brown colouration. The deep royal purple will first be apparent with sexual maturity in the female and become increasingly deeper with each molt.
