Eyelash Jumping Spiders

Eyelash Jumping Spiders

These charming little spiders have become very popular as pets recently, and with good reason – they are ridiculously cute! With large, forward facing eyes and fuzzy bodies, fairly short legs and an endearing habit of cocking their head to regard their keeper, they are a long way from the traditional, scary spider type.

Our animals are only available for collection in store. Speak to our care team, or visit us in-store to purchase your new pet.
