Product Description
$ 39.99
Maximum quantity available reached.

Captive Bred  --  "Special Pricing"

You will receive:

(1) Well looked after Captive Bred Female Regal Spider about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in size.  At this size they are about 3 months old.  They are small.

Plus:

(1) Complete mini-forest habitat consisting of Coconut Fiber, moss, and bark.  Size:  24 ounces (4 x 4 x 3 inches) plus a few insects for food when your Regal arrives.

 

In a round about way these spiders do get to know you as you interact with them.  They can be fun to handle and a real learning experience.

Our Captive Bred Regals are now eating Hydei fruit flies and 1/2 inch meal worms. 

The adult photo is for display purposes only.  This is what an adult male regal spider looks like. 

Characteristics: 

They use their webbing as a dragline to catch itself in case of an unsuccessful attack.

They have a nearly 360° field of view and two very unique big eyes that constantly watch your every move.

They can be tamed and taught to jump from one hand to another. 

Name: Phiddipus regius: the name translates to “Phiddipus”, jumper and “regius”, the royal. Thus its scientific name translates to “the royal jumper”. Its common name is derived pretty much verbatim from its scientific name.

Temperature: Room temperature.

Humidity: Spider will derive suitable moisture from misting.

Adult Size: About 12mm in males and 15mm in females.

Feeding: Small feeder insects. Prey items should be no larger than the size of the spider’s abdomen. Remove uneaten prey items: these may endanger the spider during molting. 

Spiderlings can be fed as frequently as they are willing to eat but should be fed at least one to three times a week otherwise.

Sexing: Regal jumping spiders are sexually dimorphic and have a number of characters that can be used to distinguish males from females. One of the most obvious tells is the male’s iridescent blue-green chelicerae.

Color/Pattern: Males are black with white patterning consisting of white spots in a triangular arrangement beneath a white band on its abdomen following its connection to the cephalothorax. They also possess enlarged iridescent chelicerae that are believed to help females visually identify males. 

Females are slightly larger than the males on average and are often covered in colored scales (gray, tan, brown, orange, etc.) which can make them easily distinguishable from the males. Females also have iridescence on their chelicerae though it is less pronounced and obscured by their palpi which are densely coated in long white hair. 

Social Behavior

 It is generally suggested that you have a separate cage for each spider. If you put two females together or two males together, they will most likely fight to the death.

If you want a larger habitat as your spider grows bigger we also have a maxi-forest habitat you can purchase.  There are light-up versions of these habitats as well.

Fedex is the recommended for all live orders as USPS transit times are now longer.
