Beach Bum jumping spider (Undescribed Saitis sp5) Female
$20.00 – $55.00 excl. GST
With optional Kit!
The Beach Bum jumping spider is a medium sized species of jumping spider found on beaches around Adelaide, where they mimic sand grains and pebbles. They have been observed eating tiny black ants – about the size of a pinhead. They do well when fed pinheads.
Then are different to the Pebble Mimicking Jumping spiders – they have red stripey legs and lack the patterns on the abdomen. This species grows to 7mm. They like to create a silk sack, and then roll in the sand, so do not be alarmed if you can’t see your jumping spider. They tend to be more active with first daylight and early mornings, and then again late afternoons to early evening. Please make sure you keep the sand dry at all times – read our care guide below.
This species comes in varied patterns (see photos)
Optional Kit includes:
- White sand substrate,
- fake plants
- Bark hide
- shell-o-bowl with scoria for water
– all you’ll need is pinhead crickets and keep the sand dry!
Please note: Jumping spiders can live 1-2 years in captivity, however males often perish more easily. All jumping spiders are sold as adults and thus we cannot establish their true age.
