    US Captive Reared Albuquerque slings: Phidippus Johnsoni, and Phidippus Carneus slings for $20 as well as older Phidippus Comatus slings for $25.

    The pregnant mothers were caught locally in Albuquerque. The slings were born in captivity and start losing their instinctive fear of people pretty quickly, such that the oldest Phidippus Comatus slings have no fear of humans and like to use my hand as a jungle gym. I made a free wiz website...

  16. Phidippus nikites 'neon orange'

    Phidippus nikites 'neon orange'

    This male had escaped and was found outside with a wound on his head- i think he tried to court an audax or johnsoni and got nipped on the head. She's absolutely bursting with eggs!
  17. Phidippus apacheanus 'brown'

    Phidippus apacheanus 'brown'

    Apache jumpers are strange- this population is full of huge specimens, yet another area nearby is full of tiny specimens that never reach 15mm. At any rate i'll have lots of eggsacs next year.. @[email protected] good thing i have a perpetual fruitfly harvest :D
  18. Phidippus ardens

    Phidippus ardens

    Mature female This specimen far more greatly resembles johnsoni- identification was made easy by having these specimen as an immature.
  19. Phidippus ardens

    Phidippus ardens

    Mature female The name 'ardens' is a reference to these spiders resembling a burning cinder with ash or soot. They are similar to johnsoni but unrelated and are closer to apacheanus, females often have striking high-contrast patterning.
  20. Phidippus californicus

    Phidippus californicus

    Mature males are beautiful and high-contrast with yellow/orange/red coloration- somewhat like a mix of clarus and audax
