Desert tarantula (Selenocosmia ‘secret squirrel’)



Selenocosmia is a smaller tarantula species found across most of the arid interior.  They inhabit deep burrows with minimal webbing around it.

This ‘species’ is often sold as ‘secret squirrel’ however it is not a true species and according to a recent DNA study is the same as regular S. stirlingi.

While they are found in arid areas, they burrow to an area where it is moist so they need to be kept on moist coco peat.

WARNING : Tarantulas have tarsal claws and scopula pads and can climb plastic and glass, be careful.

Optional kit includes

  • mini clearview enclosure
  • Tarantula substrate
  • faux plants
