Since 2008, the majestic ornamental tarantula sapphire ( Poecilotheria metallica ) has been classified as "critically endangered" on the red list of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Main threats: the destruction of its habitat (the forest of the state of Jharkhand, in India), and its popularity rating with collectors.
