Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tree Spider  Poecilotheria metallica comes from southeastern India and Sri Lanka and was first discovered in a town called Gooty, which explains 20% of that cumbersome common name. They attain a legspan of around 15 to 20 cm (6 to 8 inches), which is fairly humble for a tarantula. They are arboreal, spending all their time up tall trees. They live in whatever holes they can find and lunge out at insects which they capture and eat.
