Pop In & Pick Up Weekend


Monday 22nd October - I will be on holiday until Wednesday 7th of November


Many of you will know by now that I'm off to Costa Rica (voted the happiest country in the world). My daughter and partner will be looking after the animals while I am away and I will sort out any enquiries and orders upon my return. Thanks to all those who sent best wishes, I will keep you updated of my adventures on Facebook!


  • Megaphobema robustum - Giant Columbian Red Leg Tarantula

Common Name:Giant Columbian Red Leg Tarantula
Scientific Name: Megaphobema robustum

Status: Captive Bred  

Country of origin - Colombia
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Huge but skittish as a youngster

My Opinion:
The Giant Colombian Red Leg (sometimes just called the Giant Colombian) is a magnificent, huge tarantula. Their colours need to be seen to be believed and even the spiderlings have these bright colours. They can be quite skittish as youngsters but seem to become less so as they grow. This species likes to burrow so a larger vivarium with a deep substrate is a bonus for them. Not usually aggressive, they prefer to run and hide. Not always easy to obtain but a fun spider to keep.

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

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.
