Blue-Legged Tarantula (Phlogius PQ113) Advanced slings

(19 customer reviews)



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 advanced slings with a roughly body length of 1cm and a diagonal legspan of about 30mm. This species is from northern Queensland and the adults are widely regarded as Australia’s most beautiful. After a fresh moult, the posterior half of the abdomen is shiny blue, the femurs of all legs a lovely dark blue and the rest of the leg (excluding the coxa and trochanter which form the base of the leg) are a nice baby blue. The ocular region has a blue tint and the rest of the spider is dark grey.

Tarantula slings should be fed crickets. Here at Bug frenzy we care about our bugs (even the feeders) 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 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.

Optional kit includes:

  • Mini clear view enclosure with tarantula soil
  • 4 fake plants

    You guys are great! My newest family member arrived, promptly, snug, safe and sound. I honestly don’t expect anything else when I shop with Big Frenzy, now the only place I purchase my new little family members from. Took a cricket on first day home and completely dug and webbed up it’s burrow in an incredibly beautiful web by end of day two. Amazing little dude.
    Kudos 👏👏👍👍

    Small beginnings for what will be a large spider. Webbed up it’s enclosure on its first night, taking extra small crickets just fine. Surprisingly active in the evenings.
