-Pumpkin Patch-

Hapalopus formosus 


-This species was commonly labeled as Hapalopus sp. 'Large' or Hapalopus sp. 'Colombia' when the specimens available in the hobby where still unclear. This is a small, skittish semi-fossorial species from the western lowland and coastal forests of Colombia. 


-New word terrestrial/fossorial. Provide this species with ample burrowing oppurtunities and pre-made hides/scrapes. They will utilize thick webbing to fortify these structures and may create shallow tubes, or deep burrows. This species hails from tropical woodland and is often found under fallen trees, rock formations, and within abandoned mammal or reptile burrows. 


-A small species, bordering on 'dwarf' status. Adults typically measure 2-3.5" diagonal legspan with males being the smaller.
