|Phidippus audax spiderlings,|
soon ready for their very own, warm terrarium or safe indoor garden.
REHOMING FEE APPLIES. PLEASE HAVE a warm terrarium and food and water source for them and basic knowledge of care. Thank you!
Will be ready for rehoming- once they leave their nest.
Momma is a healthy 3/4", year and a half old, beautiful and mature, female example of the audax species, black with minimal white spotting, green chelicerae (jaws) with iridescent sheen. She prefers to live in our home. Very gentle and calm to handle- no nervousness, no aggression, no biting, no shyness- very trusting of the human :-) She is amazing!
SUPER MOMMA, started building a silken nest on October 26 and finished October 28.
The spiderlings have been visible inside their silken sanctuary since November 14th and have since then molted (their first molt) and have grown subtly since then, approx. 1/16".
The father is also an audax, one of the kings in the outdoor garden. They are all mostly 1/2", mature in color, black with substantially more white markings then female, also with green chelicerae. They enjoy living among the Amaryllis, Hydrangeas, and roses, keeping the garden free of flies.
