  1. Fabulous Spider

    Posted by Smithers on 26th Oct 2017

    Visually comparable to a great big wolf spider with really long legs - quite a nice patterning going on. Likes to stay still, but when disturbed will just dart across the water surface at lightning speeds, and if feeling threatened will tend to hide on an object underwater. This is a fabulous spider.

    Minibeast Wildlife's service is great. Can't recommend them enough.

    Very pretty spider, also calm while handling into new enclosure. It has made itself a nice home onto of the plant next to the water

    Received a female about a month ago, has now molted and settling in nicely, a unique spider as it lives near water. Very large now and beautiful
