Giant bark jumping spider (Servaea incana)Sub/Adults

(54 customer reviews)


Stripy legs, well camouflaged, active and inquisitive!

Out of stock


This species of jumping spider is found under the bark of eucalyptus trees in southern Australia. They grow to 13mm in body length and build silken retreats underneath bark.  They are very active and inquisitive, and hardy in captivity. Despite their intimidating size, these are a timid species and can be handled safely if respect is given, like handling all spiders. Females and males are basically identical with males being slightly shaggier and more grey in colouration.

Care Tips:

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

Enclosure should have bark hide available as this is their favourite hang-out place.  We recommend the The Bug Box or Little Bug Box

Sold as unsexed sub-adults/adults.

    Very active little jumper! Walked right into the enclosure! A little thing I was a little concerned about though, is that my little friend had lost 2 legs when he had arrived! I’m not sure if he lost them due to shipping or me but I don’t think it was me since I haven’t handled him yet. He’s lost the 2 back legs so I’m not sure if he can jump. I hope he grows them back! Other than the issues just stated, 5 stars!

    Arrived alive and well. super active and very curious little spider, always can be found wandering around the top of its enclosure

  8. Robert (verified owner)

    Happy with the little guy. His second left leg is shrunken looking compared to the others, but otherwise he’s jumping and eating.
    I would have liked to know some info about the spider I was getting at purchase or on the tub he came in.

    Such a cute and inquisitive little dude! As soon as I put my little one in their enclosure they were walking all around and investigating. So happy with my little Zebedee!

    I love him so much

  15. marilyn_sant (verified owner)

    I love this little guy – I have named him Eucalyptus (not sure if he’s a he or she!) A very inquisitive spider and always comes out of his web to say hello to me. It’s fascinating watching him catch crickets and he has a glorious big booty after he finishes his meal!
    He’s furry, cute and very entertaining, I want ten of him! Arrived safely, active and healthy. Highly recommended!

    Arrived safely, alert and very curious, took a little while to get it in to its enclosure as it didn’t want to leave the container. Only it would be awesome if a little pamphlet about the spider came with it.

    My little Peanut arrived fast and safe – he was very inquisitive and almost immediately started building his web in the top of the enclosure. He didn’t eat for a couple weeks probably due to the stress of moving and maybe old age but he seems to be doing fine now after gobbling up 4 crickets yesterday.

    Love my little guy. We put him straight into his enclosure when he got here and he settled in straight away. He loves to watch people and definitely is an active guy, very friendly fell. Love Mr George to bits.

    I’m in love with this little critter. He is so very inquisitive and friendly. Healthy little guy too. Can’t wait to buy more!

  21. Taylor Ann (verified owner)

    💕✨Very friendly, best eater! We got to hangout and have encounters from the moment he arrived, he arrived in perfect condition with the date he last ate on the box itself and the box tells you everything you need to do to look after your jumper! Would definitely recommend to anyone, they are extremely fast.. so you need speedy hands to catch up- I named my little guy “ Switch” because he can never make up his mind about where he wants to explore.✨💕

    A VERY beautiful species and definitely large for a stumpy/square profile Aussie jumper.
    While hunting, it moves almost like a robot with slow cautious steps but when in range, a super fast takedowns, awesome!
    Plenty of room in the Bug Frenzy Tall Bug box kit.
    Thanks again Bug Frenzy : )
