Antilles Pink-Toe Tarantula

This is an Antilles pink-toe tarantula.  It is also called Martinique Red Tree Spider.  These spiders live in the Antilles islands.  They are called pink-toe because they have pink toes.  They live inside of trees and they make a funnel web to hide out in during the day.  At night it comes out and hunts for insects and small lizards.  We saw this one at Milwaukee Public Museum in the Bugs Alive! exhibit.  In this picture, you can see the funnel web that the tarantula made in its cage.
