Is this a Blue Cobalt tarantula? If so I think the description "beautiful but deadly" would be perfect.

I think english, common name is "Pinktoe". Blue cobalt is reffered to Haplopelma lividum.

Ah I see :) Thank you for not being cruel at my naivety as people often are. I still think this picture and the spider it contains are lovely.

Raptor is 100% correct, the Cobalt Blue is a Haplopelma species of Tarantula, "Old World" like the Ornithoctoninae sub-family or Poecilotherias (Ornamentals). None are actually lethal/deadly...the Avicularia in Raptor's expertly taken picture is one of the most docile Tarantulas on the planet and has very mild venom.

Thanks

This is tropical species from South America.
Spiders can be more colorful. Check in google "Poecilotheria metallica" or "Tapinauchenius violaceus" :)
