From Monday 12th April

As a non-essential shop I will be inviting customers along to my bug room to collect their order or choose their animals by appointment. I have added some "collection only" items to the website as an incentive!

  • Acanthoscurria geniculata - Giant White Knee Tarantula

Common Name : Giant White Knee Tarantula
Scientific Name : Acanthoscurria geniculata

Status : Captive Bred 

Country of origin - Brazil, South America
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: No special requirements, an easy spider to keep.

My Opinion:
A beautiful tarantula, even my hubby agrees they are pretty!!! Easy to keep, large and impressive, long lived and tend to stay out in the open where they can be seen. They are not an aggressive species but they do not compare with the Mexican Red Knee when it comes to being docile. They are skittish and not suitable for handling.

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

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.
