Entomologists in Thailand have discovered a new species of tarantula called the Chilobrachys natanicharum. This tarantula has a blue-violet hue resembling electrical sparks, making its coloration a rare and enchanting phenomenon. The species was named after executives of a real estate company through a nationwide auction. The spider has unique and iridescent blue-purple hair on its legs and body, with the color being more intense in females. They are found in Thailand’s southern mangrove forests and possibly in evergreen forests, but their habitat is threatened by destruction and hunting. Conservation efforts are needed to protect the species.
