• Thrixopelma ockerti - Peruvian Orange Rump

Common Name:Peruvian Orange Rump
Scientific Name: Thrixopelma ockerti

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Peru
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Not very friendly and skittish

My Opinion:
This is quite an unusual tarantula, certainly something a bit different. They have a strange way of walking and slink around rather like a cat. They also have an annoying habit of kicking off hairs at the slightest provocation. That said they are a bit different and a bright, colourful species.

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

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.
