Juvenile Tarantulas

Shop our wide range of juvenile tarantulas for sale online. ‘Juvie’ tarantulas are spiders grown past the spiderling stage, but not yet to adulthood. Ideal for people who want an affordable but interactive pet, juvenile spiders offer easy-care and hardiness.

Which juvenile tarantula species should I buy?

The best juvenile tarantulas for beginners include the Mexican red knee, which shows its beautiful banded colouration even as a younger spider. Curly hair tarantulas possess their fluffy exoskeleton as juveniles, making them another popular choice for new keepers.

What do juvenile tarantulas eat? What should I feed mine?

Juvenile tarantulas generally range from 5-7cm in size, so the ideal livefood for your spider will vary depending on how large it is. Typically, prey items should not be larger than the size of your tarantulas abdomen. Crickets, dubia roaches, locusts, and other livefood options all work well given they’re not too large.

Is it safe to buy juvenile tarantulas online? How does this work?

Yes, it’s safe to buy juvenile tarantulas from us. We ship exclusively within the UK via ‘Royal Mail Next-Day Before 1pm Guaranteed’ service, ensuring your pet spends only minimal time in transit. We’ll send out a shipping confirmation email when it is on the way. If there are any issues and your animals arrive ill or deceased, we offer refunds for injuries and illnesses within a 7 day window after arrival.*

My juvenile tarantula just arrived, what's next?

The wait is over! It’s time to unbox your new ‘T’ from its temporary transit containers and get it into its home. Ensure you’ve prepared your pet’s setup ahead of time – you’ll want to get it settled in as soon as possible. Unbox your pet in a clear, open space, ensuring it can’t dart away anywhere. Then, use a soft brush to coax the animal into its new setup. You might feel more comfortable wearing thick gloves, especially for highly venomous species. Gently mist the enclosure walls with water to allow them a drink, and leave them to settle in.

How do I care for a juvenile tarantula? Are they easy to care for?

Juveniles are considered a relatively easy age-group to care for, as they do not require excessively large terrariums at this stage. You can keep your pet in a suitable repurposed container, or a glass terrarium. If your tarantula species is arboreal, you’ll need an enclosure taller than it is wide. If your species is fossorial or terrestrial, you’ll need an enclosure wider than it is tall, with enough depth to add substrate for burrowing.

Do younger tarantulas make good pets?

Juveniles are considered a great age group to keep, displaying the colouration of their adult forms, while having overcome the higher mortality rate seen in the spiderling stage. They require less space than their adult counterparts, and are arguably more rewarding, allowing you to care for your pet as it grows.

Can juvenile tarantulas be kept together?

Juvenile tarantulas should almost never be kept together, save for some species which are considered to be communal. Ensure you’ve done research into communal keeping before attempting to house any tarantulas together.
