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 :)

  • Omothymus violaceopes - Singapore Blue Tarantula

Common Name: Singapore Blue Tarantula
Scientific Name: Omothymus violaceopes

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Singapore & Malaysia
Habitat: Tree dwelling
Suitability:  Not for beginners / Fast & aggressive

My Opinion:
These spiders are magnificent, the colours are beautiful and the adult females are a stunning iridescent blue. The adult males look very different to the females, they lack the bright colours but have incredibly long legs, they are also quite beautiful. These spiders spend a lot of time in a thick web and prefer to venture out during the night. They are generally very aggressive when disturbed and fast moving.

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

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.
