Brachypelma vagans (Mexican red rump) will develop into a velvet black spider with thick red "hairs" on its abdomen. This typically docile and hardy species is a great beginner tarantula.
Brachypelma smithi is the "Hobby classic tarantula". Coveted by beginners and experienced keepers alike, B. smithi is one of my personal favorites. Known for being large, colorful and docile this scrub-land species is extremely hardy. Females can live to be older than 30 years. These spiderlings were captive-bred here at Jamie's Tarantulas. Check out OUR BLOG to see pictures of the mother and the developing babies.
The Jamie's Tarantulas Adult Tarantula Cage is designed for use with arboreal or terrestrial tarantulas. Cages are CNC-machine precision cut and hand assembled here in the USA.
Avicularia purpurea or the Purple pinktoe appears velvet black at first sight but turns brilliant purple when under light. As the species is sensitive we recommend these newly-hatched A. purpurea to those who have experience rearing small spiderlings of the Avicularia genus.
