The Specs

These spiders like dry conditions. We keep our slings in vials with only moss, and drip two drops of water week. Feed them crushed crickets in the web or flies once a week.

Species Description

One of the most adorable groups of spiders in existance, this amazing Turish species is a small species (reaching only 1.5" legspan) and females maintains a solid black appearance with an orange face, while mature males become a gorgeous red.

These specimensa are well started 1/4"  legspan, and but we wanted to be conservative just in case some of this batch are a tad samller. This is an arid species that catches food with its web and can take down surprisingly large prey. These do not come around often, so grab them while you can! 

We suggest keeping them seperate. We will send a vial with moss that they can stay in while you get them established in your care. Then feel free to transfer after they grow!
