  • Another wonderful Tliltocatl species with the central part of it's natural range being in Guatemala.
  • Similar in look and temperament to other Tliltocatl red rumped species.
  • Great species that likes to stay in the open as adults, making a lovely and well tempered display spider.

Tliltocatl sabulosus is commonly known as the Guatemalan Red Rump. Its scientific name has Greek and Latin roots meaning "short sole of the foot" and "sandy or gravelly"

Enclosure: 

Tliltocatl sabulosus is a terrestrial species. Surface area of the enclosure should be no less than two times the spider's diagonal leg span in one direction and three times the diagonal leg span in the other. The enclosure should be tall enough to accommodate 2"-3" of substrate for slings and 4"+ for adults. Never allow your terrestrial spider more than two times their diagonal leg span as head space above their substrate as a fall from any higher could be catastrophic.

Temperature:

Ideally kept in the mid 70° range with a bit of wiggle room in either direction. Temperatures consistently below 65° or above 85° should be avoided.

Humidity:

60%-70%, slings should stay on lightly moist substrate, adults should have a water dish and a corner of their enclosure that goes through a wet/dry cycle, moistening the substrate and then leaving it alone until it dries out.

Size:

Specimens sold by Josh's frogs will be at least .5-.75" at time of sale. Adults can reach up to 6" diagonal leg span.

Age:

Tliltocatl sabulosus babies sold by Josh's Frogs are at least 2-3 months old. Males reach 4-5 years, with females drastically outliving them at 20+ years.

Feeding:

At time of sale they are eating hydei two times per week, food should be sized to about the size of the spider's carapace. Older spiders can eat less frequently, with adults eating every 10-14 days.

Sexing:

Due to age, Tliltocatl sabulosus spiderlings sold by Josh's Frogs are sold as unsexed. Specimens of 2.5"-3" diagonal leg span will be able to start being accurately sexed. The most accurate method is always molt sexing, the molt of a female tarantula of appropriate size will have spermatheca and a uterus externus in between the top two sets of book lungs that will appear as a "flap" that will catch and open if a pin is gently run down this section of the old exoskeleton. Males will have a much more plain slit that will not budge with attempts to manipulate it.

Coloration/patterning:

Slings are light brown, growing to a velvety black or dark dusty brown with flame red hairs on the abdomen.

Social behavior:

Tliltocatl sabulosus are not social creatures and any attempt to cohabitate will likely result in cannibalism.

Breeding:

Spiders housed for breeding purposes should remain supervised when together and should only be attempted well fed. Mature males can be put in the enclosure of a mature female for courtship/mating. Remove male promptly after insertion is observed, or immediately if female is aggressive rather than receptive.

Natural Range:

Most parts of Central America and Southern Mexico.
