• Brachypelma hamorii - Mexican Red Knee Tarantula

Common Name: Mexican Red Knee Tarantula (formerly known as Brachypelma smithi)
Scientific Name: Brachypelma hamorii 

Status: Captive Bred

Country of origin - Mexico
Habitat: Ground dwelling
Suitability: Easy to keep, a great beginners tarantula

My Opinion:
I feel that the Mexican Red Knee is the original and still by far the best pet tarantula. They are large, colourful, docile, long lived and tend to sit out in the open where they can be seen.

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.

This animal is covered by CITES regulations, Annex B. I do not import animals and therefore know relatively little about CITES.

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!)

I am happy to send a photo of any medium or large size spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
