Tasmanicosa gilberta Is a species of large burrowing wolf spider found in South Australia.

They ambush passing prey, sinking their fangs into the back of the insect’s neck. They are mildly venomous but timid and very fast, handling is not recommended.

    Very sassy and large! I got a male originally but he didn’t survive the travel and bug frenzy was very quick to replace him for me with a very sassy and defensive female that’s in amazing shape

    I’ve had my Bruce for about a week now and the guy is a great eater. Any cricket I put in his enclosure is in his mouth within seconds. He is also very extroverted and rarely out of site. Thanks for the great spider, Bug Frenzy!
