Mexican red knee tarantula By Georgia 4M

Description The Mexican red knee tarantula has a dark coloured body with orange patches on the joints of its legs; the second element of the legs [ the Trochanter ] is orange – red. Following moulting, the colours are more pronounced. The dark portion is very black, while the orange – red portions will be far more on the reddish side. An adult female has a body roughly 4 inches [10cm] long, with a leg span of 6-7 inches [15-18cm], and a weight of approximately 15 to 16 grams.
