Regal Jumping Spider


Latin Name: P.regius

Sex: Currently Unknown

Size: Spiderling

Male jumping spiders are black with white markings and grow to an average of 12mm and females often have similar markings but range from grey to vivid orange and grow to an average of 15mm. Jumping spiders need to have good light as they use sight to hunt but not be in direct light as this can course the spider to overheat. Spiderlings will start out on fruit flies as they are very small, as they malt and get bigger, so will the prey item and can eat insects such as mealworms and bluebottle flies. A light mist on 1 side of the enclosure will ensure the spider is well hydrated.
