$55.00$70.00 excl. GST

Cute baby tarantulas!



Phlogius is an unofficial genus of Australian Tarantulas (Theraphosidae) that is currently called ‘Selenocosmia’.  This species is know for it’s red setae ( hence rubiseta – “ruby” + “setae” = rubiseta) which are sensory hairs on the legs and body.

These are slings with a roughly body length of 1cm. This species is from northern Queensland.

Tarantula slings should be fed pre-killed crickets (euthanised, to do this –  put the cricket in the fridge for 5 minutes, and then into the freezer for 15-20 minutes, then they don’t feel a thing). Here at Bug frenzy we care about our bugs 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 considerably 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.
