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.


  • Thrigmopoeus truculentus - Lesser Goa Mustard Tarantula

Common Name: Lesser Goa Mustard Tarantula
Scientific Name: Thrigmopoeus truculentus

Status: Captive Bred 

Country of origin - Goa, India
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Not for beginners

My Opinion:
This is a fast moving, aggressive spider and therefore not suitable for beginners. They are uncommon in the hobby and although they spin a think web and like to burrow, when they are seen they are very attractive!   

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

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.
