Red-headed jumping spider (Maratus griseus) ‘Leopard form’ Captive Bred Young Sub/Adult Female

(2 customer reviews)


A tiny leopard look-alike!

Out of stock


Maratus griseus is found across Australia and common in homes and gardens. They make great beginner pets as they are relatively big and easy to care for.  They are hardy and are excellent eaters.

This form we call the “leopard” because of the abdominal patterning. Compared to the standard form, these are more striking but about 3mm smaller.

We recommend for housing our Cube enclosure or The Mini Bug box with side door , and the “jumper kit” selected.


About our new versatile Mini Bug Box:

It can be used tall with the swing door at the top or you can lay it on it’s side for critters who needs a bit more running space.  It has a lockable latch and measures 20cm x 12cm x 12cm.  This product will be added as a seperate item to our enclosures section eventually, but at the moment we are offering it as an optional kit for suitable invertebrates. Also, there will be ventilation holes drilled according to the selected kit layout.

Our custom enclosures are all hand assembled – so please understand that there may be some minor imperfections now and again and it is made of perspex which requires special care.

Mini Bug Box Care Tips:

Acrylic can last an eternity with minimal care and maintenance. Acrylic care consists of no more than normal wipe-cleaning to keep it looking new – but care should be taken to avoid scratches.
Acrylic is also stable when exposed to sunlight, so it will not yellow or crack even when used in normal outdoor environments.

Cleaning Acrylic:

Use only a very soft damp cloth when cleaning acrylic surfaces. It is possible to scratch acrylic, so NEVER use any scouring compounds or chemical cleaners such as Windex or other glass cleaners (even if they are environmentally friendly, organic or non-scented). Should anything ever stick to an acrylic surface (such as an adhesive label or gummy substance) do not use any type of solvent.

Never use the same cloth that you clean other household items with – it can retain dirt, grit, and chemical residues that may harm your acrylic items. We recommend using a new or separate cloth for your acrylic care.

CAUTION: Never use window cleaner, ammonia products, or other chemical sprays on acrylic!

  • Please note: All jumping spiders are not as suited to keeping in captivity than other species.  Jumping spiders can live 1-2 years in captivity, however males often perish more easily.  All jumping spiders are sold as adults and thus we cannot establish their true age.
