-Colombian Giant Red-leg-

Megaphobema robustum


-This is a large fossorial species found in Colombia and western Brazil. These are obligate burrowing spiders, from spiderlings to massive adults. They are characterized by bright red and black contrasts and a fiercely defensive disposition. 


-New world fossorial. Provide these spiders with deep substrate and burrow starts to provide initial hides and prevent overstressed animals. M. robustum will quickly begin burrowing and tunneling, sometimes shifting vast quantities of substrate around overnight. These spiders hail from warm, humid tropical forest floor habitats. 


-Adults can measure between 6 and 8" diagonal legspan.
