Still pretty cold but the snow is melting and temperatures are set to rise so I will be sending off all orders tomorrow and then my last posting day before Christmas will be Monday.


  • Brachypelma vagans - Mexican Red Rump Tarantula

Common Name:Mexican Red Rump Tarantula
Scientific Name: Brachypelma vagans

Status : Captive Bred

Country of origin - Mexico
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: Docile, large and attractive

My Opinion:
The Mexican Red Rump is one of the 'old favourites' they have been in the pet trade even longer than me and are a good beginners spider. Generally docile, their colours are lovely (especially just after moulting), they sit out in full view and live for many years.

This animal is covered by CITES regulations, Annex B. I do not import animals and therefore know relatively little about CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). I can send these animals to EU countries (I do not supply certificates) and I cannot send to countries outside the EU. Please do not order these animals unless your postal address is within the European Union. Please do not order these animals if you require a certificate. If an animal is ordered in error I will remove the item from your order and refund the price of the animal. 

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

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.
