Australian Rainforest Tarantula (Phlogius sp. Kuranda) Advanced slings

(2 customer reviews)



Please be aware that we will only be shipping out these tarantulas from the 19th of July 2021. They are not included in this week’s orders.

Phlogius is an unofficial genus of tarantulas that is currently called ‘Selenocosmia’. This genus is known for it’s fast growth rate and awesome webbing.

These are slings with a roughly body length of 1.5-2cm. This species is from Far northern Queensland, in the Kuranda region near Cairns. The adults of this species are very robust and are dark grey and brown.

Tarantula slings should be fed crickets. Here at Bug frenzy we care about our bugs (even the feeders) and as such we don’t recommend “partially crushing the crickets heads” (As recommended by some keepers) as this is very painful for the cricket and quite frankly, cruel. They can be fed live crickets if they are smaller than the spider and the spider has constructed a burrow/web-retreat.

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


Optional Kit Includes:

  • Mini Clear View! 8cm x 8cm x 8cm clear acrylic
  • Substrate
