I will be off on holiday this Friday (returning Tuesday 19th). All orders received before Thursday will be sent on Thursday. All orders received after this time will be held until my return.

Thank you so much to all the people who heard my plea and have placed orders prior to my holiday, especially those that bought praying mantis :)

  • Aphonopelma seemanni - Costa Rican Zebra Tarantula

Common Name:  Costa Rican Zebra
Scientific Name: Aphonopelma seemanni

Status: Captive bred

Country of origin - Costa Rica
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Large, can be a little jumpy

My Opinion:
The Zebra is a large, beautiful spider with bold, black and white stripes. They are amazing, just like everything in Costa Rica (my favourite place in the world!). They are a popular species and make a very good display animal as they tend to sit out in the open. Although they can be skittish, they are rarely aggressive. 

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

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!)

I am happy to send a photo of any medium or large size spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
