Bonnetina cyaneifemur ~1/2″



Bonnetina cyaneifemur comes from the state of Colima, Mexico. The type specimen was found 8 km north of the coastal city of Manzanillo, Colima, in the eastern foothills of the southern reach of the Sierra Madre Occidental. [1] Temperatures in the type locality are reported to stay mainly between 20C and 35C. [1]

Bonnetina are small tarantulas (dwarfs). Keeping is not difficult. We use room temperature, dry substrate and a water dish.
