Short description about Phidippus regius “White Bahamas”:
Phidippus regius “White Bahamas” is probably the best known and most popular local form of Phidippus regius. The typical appearance, with its high proportion of white, gives the animals a cuddly appearance.
A female can produce up to 6 clutches of 30-170 eggs each. The average total clutch size is about 200 eggs per female. Later clutches are usually smaller than earlier clutches. Phidippus regius “White Bahamas” does not require high humidity. 60-70 % is quite sufficient. It is better to keep it a little drier than too humid. It is sufficient to spray a little water on a pane twice a week. If necessary, the spider will go to a drop of water and quench its thirst. A water bowl is not necessary.
