White-haired little plump juvies.

Out of stock


The pebble mimicking jumping spider is a medium sized species of jumping spider found on beaches around Adelaide, where they mimic sand grains and pebbles. They have been observed eating tiny black ants – about the size of a pinhead.  They do well when fed pinheads.

This species grows to 7mm. They like to create a silk sack, and then roll in the sand, so do not be alarmed if you can’t see your jumping spider. They tend to be more active with first daylight and early mornings, and then again late afternoons to early evening.

Please make sure you keep the sand dry at all times – read our care guide below.

  • This species comes in varied patterns (see photos)
  • We recommend the mini clear view enclosure with white sand as they are tiny.
  • You will need to feed these juvies fruit flies or newborn baby crickets.
  • When feeding them fruit flies, please cover the ventilation holes as the flies may escape.

Sold as unsexed juvies.

    Really cute and pretty little jumper, can’t wait to watch it grow up! Has been hiding during most of the day as expected but still pops up every now and then to say hello.
