• Ephebopus murinus - Skeleton Tarantula

Common Name:Skeleton
Scientific Name: Ephebopus murinus

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Brazil
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: Not for beginners, extremely aggressive

My Opinion:
A large striking spider in more ways than one, attractively striking and also aggressively striking. Their black and white colouring is lovely but then I do really like the Ephebopus genus. They are always up for a fight with little or no provocation.  This species of tarantula is one of the most aggressive and most likely to strike repeatedly in my opinion, they are also fast moving but all that said they are really attractive and never boring!  

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

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.
