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 :)

  • Hapalopus species 'gross'- Pumpkin Patch Tarantula

Common Name: Pumpkin Patch Tarantula
Scientific Name: Hapalopus species 'Gross'

Status: Captive bred

Country of origin - Columbia
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: Docile and not too large

My Opinion:
The Pumpkin Patch is a relatively new pet tarantula, they only seem to have been around for a few years. They don't grow very big but they are brightly coloured and appear to be pretty docile. I did have both males and females last year but sadly they didn't mature at the same time so I didn't get a chance to breed them. They are a very nice and unusual little tarantula and something different to have in a collection.

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

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.
