Australian tarantula (Phlogius sp. black) slings

(1 customer review)


Cute baby tarantulas!


Phlogius is an unofficial genus of tarantulas that is currently called ‘Selenocosmia’. This genus is known for it’s fast growth rate and awesome webbing.

These are slings with a roughly body length of 1cm. This species is from northern Queensland and is very rare and sought after in the hobby.

Tarantula slings should be fed pre-killed crickets (euthanised, to do this –  put the cricket in the fridge for 5 minutes, and then into the freezer for 15-20 minutes, then they don’t feel a thing). Here at Bug frenzy we care about our bugs and as such we don’t recommend “partially crushing the crickets heads” (As recommended by some keepers) as this is very painful for the cricket and quite frankly, cruel. They can be fed live crickets if they are considerably smaller than the spider and the spider has constructed a burrow/web-retreat.

WARNING : Tarantulas have tarsal claws and scopula pads and can climb plastic and glass, be careful.
