Species Description

Our customers SUCCEED with our jewels. Why? Because our tarantula specialists hand cut and set up each cage personally and send it to you!! We developed this method over YEARS of keeping this species when no one had any info on them, and after keeping several hundred of the seladonia have created a design that is CONSISTENT and allows you to succeed. It is no wonder there are many others that copied it This species is our specialty and we am here to guide you guys to success with my design of cages and care sheets. The only people that do not succeed are those that do not ask questions and do not do research, but that is what we are here for :)


The pinacle of tarantulas? It is still up for debate, but no doubt the T. seladonia IS the most colorful of the tarantulas known to science.

This species is an arboreal trap door that grabs chunks of bark and creates a makeshift door that blends in with the surface it is on. That includes color and texture making the trap often times undisitinguishable from the bark surface it is on. When insects walk across the trap, the seladonia will pop out and ambush the prey and pull it back into it's layer so that it can remain hidden from other predators. 

The array of colors actually serves to make the spider blend into the bark surface and break up the outline of the body shape. The colors resemble many things including: water droplets, sap dropping and the bark surface itself. These guys are masters of camoflage. 

We ship all of our T. seladonia slings with set up enclosures so you can make sure that your sling thrives! We send the enclosure already SET UP so you dont have to worry about doing it. 

Complete Enclosure includes:

1 Cross vented cage we use here at EU 

1 Handcut bark for seladonia sling WITH Trap Mix!

ALL is set up before we send to you just as the sling was living in it. Most slings have started or have traps before we send them. We pack moss in the vials and all you do is take the packing material out and the cage is ready to use!
