Bronze jumping spider (Helpis minitabunda) ‘big boy’ juvie

(4 customer reviews)


Big boy just wants to be loved! Just look at his hairstyle!

Out of stock

SKU: Bigboy Category:


Big boy is an adult male Helpis minitabunda. He has very long, thick front legs and a slim body shape. He may look scary but really he is very nice and doesn’t want to hurt you.

Being a Helpis sp., he loves basking and will benefit from being handled outside in sunshine for a few minutes a day, but make sure he doesn’t escape!

Care Tips:

This jumper (if adult) should be fed x-small – small crickets – no bigger than the spider’s body size.

Enclosure should have lots of things to explore like bark hides and fake plants, as these jumpers are quite active.  We recommend the Mini Bug Box or The Cube, with a “Jumper” Kit.

Please note: All jumping spiders are not as suited to keeping in captivity than other species.  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.

    One of the calmest but most inquisitive jumpers I’ve seen and he loves the warmth of my hand, literally lays on his belly and taps away : )
    Amazing creature with real personality.
    Loves chilling on top of his enclosure.
    Thanks Bug Frenzy!

    Best spider purchase I’ve made in a long time, haven’t kept a jumper in over a year and wanted back in. He is amazing very active and curious, easily way to waste time just watching this little dude
