Your Mexican Redknee Tarantula (Brachypelma Hamorri) Usually Eats Crickets And Meal-Worms But When Big Can Even Eat A Cockroach Or Two. A Full Grown Mexican Redknee Tarantula (Brachypelma Hamorri) Will Eat 1 Or 2 Large Crickets A Week But Can Sometimes Go As Far At 6 Months Without Wanting To Eat. As Long As You See Its Abdomen Remaining Big In Size You Should Not Worry About It Not Eating. They Are Slow Moving And Most Of The Time Will Either Strike Fast As Soon As You Put A Cricket In Its Enclosure Or Will Not Do Anything At All. Do Not Leave The Insect In The Enclosure If You Notice It Not Being Eaten Within 24 Hours.



Though Extremely Docile The Mexican Redknee Tarantula (Brachypelma Hamorri) Does Have Some Defenses When Threatened. It’s A New World Spider And Therefor Does Come Equipped With Urticating Hairs Which It Will Flick Off Its Abdomen Should It Feel Intimidated. Should They Feel Vulnerable They Will Also Rear Up And Show Their Fangs. So As Always, Test The Waters Before Trying To Handle Them To See What Mood They Are In. A Simple Approach Would Be To Gently Nudge It From Behind With An Elongated Q-Tip Before Trying To Pick It Up.

This Tarantula Is Rather Sluggish Which Makes It Very Easy To Handle. The Mexican Redknee Tarantula (Brachypelma Hamorri) Is Quite Slow At Growing. Mine Grew From A 1 Inch Sling (Spider-Ling) To About 5 Inches Over The Course Of 5 Years. The Males Will Live A Good 5 To 6 Years While Females Can Live Upwards Of 30 Years With Ease.  All In All We Would Recommend This As A First Time Beginner Tarantula Due To Its Low Maintenance, Being Very Submissive And Also Easy To Handle.
