Orange-legged swift spider (Nyssus coloripes) Forest Form
$20.00 – $75.00 excl. GST
Extremely fast and pretty spiders!
Nyssus coloripes is a member of the Corrinidae family.
They are extremely, (extremely!) fast and can climb smooth surfaces. Their speed surpasses that of even a a Wandering ghost spider or a huntsman spider.
They have beautiful orange legs (mainly leg I and leg II) , a black body colour with white spots/blotches. Forest forms differ from mallee forms by being slightly smaller on average, brighter orange front legs and less yellow spots.
In the wild these spiders live in leaf-litter and under or in hollow logs. Catching them in the wild is very difficult due to their tendency to hide in leaf litter and they run at absolutely blazing speed!
Be careful when opening the enclosure to feed them! We recommend feeding them XS crickets twice a week.
Optional kit includes:
- Mini Bug box with Side Door (20x12x12)
- Cocopeat substrate
- fake plants for climbing
- a small amount of leaf-litter to provide hiding spaces on the floor
*Photo is of mallee form – the forest form is much more vibrant in colours, a lot more orange on the legs.
