• Ephebopus Rufescens - Red Skeleton Tarantula

Common Name:Red Skeleton Tarantula
Scientific Name: Ephebopus rufescens

Status : Captive Bred 

Country of origin - French Guiana
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Can be fast moving and aggressive

My Opinion:
The Red Skeleton is another of my favourites, I really like the Ephebopus spiders. I think they are probably all aggressive but also beautiful. The Red Skeleton has a lovely, bright, iridescent sheen, the adult females are stunning. They do tend to burrow a lot and be rather (very) defensive when challenged.

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

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.
