Greeny (Opisthoncus abnormis)

(1 customer review)


Out of stock


Greenies are medium-sized, mainly translucent green spiders that are uncommon in Qld, NSW and SA.

The species epithet “abnormis” couldn’t be more apt, they are extremely unusual in behaviour. They are found in heath (low-growing, hot and fairly dry forest) habitat and are nocturnal, they hunt at night between bushes, hanging and suspended on each end by a single silken line stretched between two plants. At night, their eyes are red for night-vision and most peculiarly… they glow in the dark under UV light, just like scorpions!

Sold as unsexed sub-adults/adults or advanced juvies
