The Thai capital is commonly referred to as Bangkok, but locals prefer Krungthep, or ‘City of Angels’. It has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest place name ever recorded.
Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahinthara Yutthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udom Ratchaniwet Mahasathan Amonphiman Awatansathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukamprasit.
Roughly, this translates to :
City of angels, great city of immortals, the magnificent city of the nine gems, seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate, erected by Vishvakarman at Indra’s behest.
What It Says On The Box:
Cobalt Blue (Cyriopagopus lividum)
This is by far the most remarkable ground dwelling Asian species in the hobby and as it common name would suggest it has a brilliant bright blue colouration (adult females). This is a fast, nasty, unpredictable yet a beautiful spider – making it a challenging and interesting species to keep! However not really suited to beginners.
Thai Zebra (Melopoeus albostriatum)
An overall black tarantula with bright yellow leg stripes, the abdomen has a distinctive striped patterning, one of the reasons spiders of the genus Melopoeus are often called Earth Tigers.
Asian Fawn (Chilobrachys huahini)
Asian Bitey Thing, Bright Orange Spider webs like nothing else and is feisty to say the least.
