BABY AUSTRALIAN TARANTULAS

1st instar Phlogius species tarantulas - also known as "slings" - Alan Henderson, Minibeast Wildlife

Captive-bred Australian tarantulas

Our first batch of baby tarantulas for this season have emerged. These are Phlogius species (Kuranda). These little ones are 1st instar and are being kept in batches of around ten spiders until they moult again. At which time they will need to be separated into individual housing to prevent them eating each other – that’s when the real work begins for us to keep them all fed!
