• 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.
