Striped House-Hopper (Maratus scutalatum) male

(1 customer review)


Very pretty striped maratus

Out of stock


This medium sized jumper is in the same genus as the Peacock spiders, however the male is not colourful and does not dance. Females are still pretty jumpers in their own right, with a light coloured abdomen, dark head and dark stripes on the abdomen.

This species grows to 10mm long.

Care Tips:

This jumper (if adult) should be fed x-small crickets – no bigger than the spider’s body size.

Enclosure should have lots of things to explore like bark hides and fake plants, as these jumpers are quite active.  We recommend the Mini Bug Box (horizontally or vertically – just specify your preference at checkout) or The Cube, with a “Jumper” Kit.

    Adorable little man. Arrived safe and very healthy. Fed same day he arrived, great feeding response.
