Prepare for an adventure of wonder and learning with our captive-bred juvenile Phidippus Audax, otherwise known as the Bold Jumping Spider. 


Phidippus Audax is known for its fascinating behaviours and distinctive physical features. Characterized by their vibrant chelicerae and white or iridescently marked bodies, the curiosity and intelligence of these jumping spiders are unparalleled. They are agile hunters, using their superior jumping abilities to pounce on their prey. As a pet, they exhibit interactive behaviours that make them attractive to observe. 


Each spiderling is reared individually and selected to ensure they are robust eaters, adaptable and suitable for a new home. We extend your time with these curious creatures by providing virgin young spiders without worrying about unexpected spiderlings (pregnancies). Our females are hearty, easy to feed, and can accompany you for slightly over a year; they tend to have a more passive lifestyle constructing hammocks and caring for eggs (unfertilized), while the males, though potentially pickier, showcase endearing curiosity and can be seen more often at the cost of a slightly shorter life span of right under a year.


Select from various stages of the spider's life cycle, ensuring you receive a specimen that best suits your interest or educational needs. Below are the sizes available for each variant, given in both inches and centimetres measured as body length (head + abdomen):


Spiderling i5/i6: These are young spiders, usually in their 5th or 6th instar. They are typically about 1/4" (5-7 mm) in body length.

Sub-Adult i7/i8: A little older and larger, these spiders are in their 7th or 8th instar and measure approximately 3/8" to 1/2" (8 to 12 mm) in body length.

Sub-Adult Male: These are nearing maturity but are not yet fully grown. They usually measure around 3/8" to 1/2" (8 to 12 mm) in body length.

Sub-Adult Female: Similar to the males but potentially larger at this stage, they measure about 3/8" to 3/4" (8 to 18 mm) in body length.

Male Adult: Fully mature males are typically smaller than females, with body lengths of about 1/2" (13 mm) in body length.

Female Adult: The largest of the options, adult females can measure 3/4" (19 mm) in body length.


We provide valuable advice on feeding, housing, and overall care to ensure your jumping spider thrives in our learning centre. These spiders have minimal maintenance needs and are perfect for novice and experienced arachnid enthusiasts.
