Size/Age:

5-7cm juvenile

Juvenile Mexican Red Knee tarantulas, or Brachypelma hamorii, are striking spiders from Mexico that are popular for their bold black bodies contrasted by radiant orange-red knee markings. These are terrestrial spiders that primarily dwell on the ground rather than climbing or burrowing deep into the earth. They hail from the New World, possessing mild venom, especially when compared to some Old World species. A bite from a Mexican Red Knee can cause local irritation and discomfort. Despite their stunning orange banded appearance, these juveniles are generally calm and slow-moving, which makes them relatively approachable for handling—although it should still be done with caution, as their bite can cause minor irritation. At this stage, they’ve yet to reach their adult leg span of 5 to 6 inches but already displaythe beautiful colouration that define their species. These young spiders are considered a beginner-friendly species due to their manageable care needs. A well-ventilated enclosure, either glass or plastic, with dimensions three times their leg span will work well for this species. A temperature of 75-80°F (23-26°C) and 60% humidity mimics their natural environment well. Providing 6 inches of burrowing-friendly substrate, like coco-fibre allows them to dig and burrow, while boosting enclosure humidity. Their diet consists of live insects, such as crickets or roaches, offered once or twice a week. A constant water source should also be available in their enclosure. We highly recommend this species to both new keepers and beginners for  their low maintenance care requirements and beauty.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail- it’s a priority that your critters are safe & snugly packed.

When you receive your order, open it up and locate the transport container your pet is inside. Gently ease out your pet into the home you’ve prepared for it.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
