Adorable little peacock spiders – Female

Out of stock


Maratus vespertillio is an average-sized species of peacock spider found in SA’s northern mallee. Females are 6-7mm and males 4-6mm.  Vespertillio males have 2 hidden flaps along the abdomen that extend during court ship to reveal a shimmering blue with faint patterns.

The females are more robust and have different colouration. They are ready jumpers and care must be taken to not let them jump out of the enclosure. They are mildly venomous but with tiny fangs and are very timid (and cute).

  • sold as unsexed juvies eating pinheads and fruit flies
  • This particular individual is most likely a sub-adult male

Enclosure: We recommend The Mini Bug Box  (sideways) or Mini Clear View enclosure.
