This is one of the most spectacular looking tarantula species available to the hobby. The dark black abdomen and contrasting red legs make this spider a force to be reckoned with. It is quite similar to Brachypelma smithi, but regarded by some as being more beautiful. They grow relatively fast, and make great display tarantulas. Due to their hardy nature and beautiful coloration, they are popular amongst beginners.
