• Brachypelma emilia - Mexican Red Leg Tarantula

Common Name:Mexican Red Leg Tarantula
Scientific Name: Brachypelma emilia

Status: Captive Bred 

Country of origin - Mexico
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability:  Fairy docile but not for handling

My Opinion:
Another beautiful, long lived, docile Mexican spider. One of the 'plodders' as I call them. They sit out in the open and don't dash all over the place or try to attack you when you open the lid! This species are especially attractive with the black triangle on the carapace contrasting with the red colouration. Not as readily available as they once were. Often confused with the Mexican Red Knee but they are not as steady as the Red Knee and in my opinion not calm enough for handling.

This animal is covered by CITES regulations, Annex B. I do not import animals and therefore know relatively little about CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). I can send these animals to EU countries (I do not supply certificates) and I cannot send to countries outside the EU. Please do not order these animals unless your postal address is within the European Union. Please do not order these animals if you require a certificate. If an animal is ordered in error I will remove the item from your order and refund the price of the animal. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

If you would like me to measure the body length of any medium or large spider, please send me an email. I cannot measure the body length of small and juvenile size spiders as they are constantly changing.

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
