Monday 26th June - I will be unavailable all day as I am attending a wedding, I'm putting this hurried note on the site as Monday is a busy day and I already have messages "binging and pinging" on my phone and computer. I may get a chance to reply this evening but it will more likely be tomorrow.  

  • Acanthoscurria geniculata - Giant White Knee Tarantula

Common Name : Giant White Knee Tarantula
Scientific Name : Acanthoscurria geniculata

Status : Captive Bred  (I am told these spiders have been sexed as female but as I don't sex spiders I cannot be 100%!)

Country of origin - Brazil, South America
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: No special requirements, an easy spider to keep.

My Opinion:
A beautiful tarantula, even my hubby agrees they are pretty!!! Easy to keep, large and impressive, long lived and tend to stay out in the open where they can be seen. They are not an aggressive species but they do not compare with the Mexican Red Knee when it comes to being docile. They are skittish and not suitable for handling.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

If you would like me to measure the body length of any medium or large spider, please send me an email. I cannot measure the body length of small and juvenile size spiders as they are constantly changing.

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
