The Mexican Red Rump Tarantula gets its name from the red hairs present on the abdomen. They can be found in moist areas of Mexico.
This species has a basic black colour with long red hairs over the abdomen. They reach a body length of 7cm (3 inch) and a leg span of 10-13cm (4-5 inches).
This is the ideal beginner Tarantula, they are docile but can be skittish. They can flick hairs, so caution should be taken if handled.
Found in burrows or under logs within moist areas of southern Mexico through to Hondurans.
Provide a deep substrate of 2-4 inches of potting soil, coconut fibre or vermiculite to allow the Tarantula to burrow. Provide hides in the form or cork bark, flower pots or reptile hides. A temperature of 25-27C (73-80F) best suits this species along with a high humidity of 65-75%.
Feed on a range of insects from crickets, locusts, mealworms and some adults will take mice pinkies. If the Tarantulas has a leg span of 3 inches or more, a small water dish can be placed inside the enclosure.
Mexican Black Kingsnake are just that, all Black. They make an ideal beginner snake, however, do need regular handling when young.
