1 to 2cm sling

The Mexican Red Knee tarantula spiderling, also scientifically known as Brachypelma hamorii is known for its beautifully patterned mature form with black and orange-red leg bands. This sling is the ideal choice for beginners, as Brachypelma hamorii is exceptionally hardy and can thrive in a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). A shallow water dish and an occasional misting will keep your sling well-hydrated. These spiderlings usually feel most comfortable in small enclosures with plenty of hiding spaces, making it easier for them to catch their prey. As they grow, simply adjust the size of the enclosure and hiding spots. Even as a spiderling, the Mexican Red Knee sling showcases hints of its future red-orange colours and, as it grows, its colours will become more defined. With a life expectancy of up to 30 years for females and around 5-10 years for males, this is a long-term commitment that continuously rewards you. Over time, the spiderling will grow into a large adult with a leg span that can reach up to 6 inches (about 15 cm).

Our Next-Day Guaranteed service promises same-day packing and delivery before 1 pm the following day for all orders placed. For standard livestock delivery, we dispatch orders within 1-5 working days, and once dispatched, your order will arrive in less than 24 hours.

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.
