May Madness! I need to clear some stock so it is "make me an offer" time on tarantulas. I may not always say yes but it is worth asking! (really depends how much I have paid for them). Just drop me an email, tell me which tarantula/tarantulas you would like and how much you would like to pay. Remember once the reduction appears on the website you will need to order quickly or someone else may bag the bargain! (the price will only be reduced for one day so please don't ask unless you are ready to buy)

  • Haplopelma minax - Thailand Black Tarantula

Common Name: Thailand Black Tarantula
Scientific Name: Haplopelma minax

Status: Wild Caught
Country of origin - Thailand / Burma

Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Not for beginners, fast and aggressive

My Opinion:
The Thailand Black tarantula was once common in the hobby but these days they are not often seen. It is an aggressive, fast moving species that spins a lot of web and often hides away. That said, their black, velvet appearance is very attractive and I have a special affinity with them as it was the first species of tarantula that I ever bred. I was very upset when the female grabbed the male and dragged him into her burrow before I could do anything but although she chewed him up and literally 'spat him out' later, she did also produce a large egg sac and many spiderlings subsequently emerged.

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

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.
