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).
