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 adult females

Enclosure: We recommend The Mini Bug Box with Jumper kit

    She is the most gorgeous spider I think I’ve ever seen! Arrived lively, and maybe a bit cross but overall safe and well. 🙂
