It is time to “make me an offer” on my tarantulas page!


Just drop me an email, tell me which tarantula/tarantulas you would like and how much you would like to pay for each

(I may or may not be able to match your offer but there will always be a reduction. It really depends how much I paid and the time put in)


Remember, once the reduction appears on the website you will need to order quickly or someone else may bag the bargain! (the price may only be reduced for a day or two so please don’t ask unless you are ready to buy)


If you would like a photo of the actual spider (any size) just email - [email protected]

  • Monocentropus balfouri - Socotra Island Blue Tarantula

Common Name: Socotra Island Blue
Scientific Name: Monocentropus balfouri

Status: Captive Bred 

Country of origin - Socotra (an island off of Africa)
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Calm for an African tarantula!

My Opinion:
If the Socotra Island Blue was summed up in one word it would be 'stunning'. This spider has amazing colours, a creamy tan body, metallic blue/silver carapace and bright blue legs. They are highly regarded in the tarantula hobby and many people swear that they can be kept communally (a real bonus). I have no experience of this and the price they cost me, I have no intention of trying it out! They like to build extensive webs and quite often hide in them. When challenged they may threaten a little but prefer to retreat and rarely seem aggressive. 

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

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of 1cm to 2cm, 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 size tarantula spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
