The Tapinauchenius violaceous (Violet Tree Spider) is a New World arboreal species that is fast moving and does show the ability to “jump” if needed. As a sling, this tarantula may be a little hesitant, but as it matures it should brave up. Like the common name implies, this species of tarantula is a serene color of violet.
