(1 customer review)


Out of stock


An introduced species from Europe, this spider mainly preys upon Isopods in the wild, but in captivity will also readily prey upon feeder crickets. It uses it’s very long chelicerae to stab the hard shells of isopods. The spider is red and cream coloured and dwells under rotting logs, stones or wherever lots of isopods can be found. These spiders have very large fangs however they have a mild venom and temperament.

They should be kept moist with some bark or leaf litter for shelter.
