About This Product

SPECIAL NOTE: USPS forbids shipping venomous spiders or scorpions in the mail.

Because of this, we ship these animals FedEx priority overnight for a flat fee of $39.99.

  • Uncommon and highly sought after, Brachypelma klaasi makes an exciting addition to any collection!
  • Whereas most members of the genus have orange or red leg markings, these guys have pink feet!
  • They like to stay in the open as adults, making them a lovely and well-tempered display spider that is regarded as one of the most docile Brachypelmas

The Brachypelma klaasi is commonly known as the Mexican Pink Beauty. Its scientific name has Greek roots meaning "short sole of the foot".

Enclosure: 

This is a terrestrial species. The surface area of the enclosure should be no less than two times the spider's diagonal leg span in one direction and three times the diagonal leg span in the other. The enclosure should be tall enough to accommodate 2"-3" of substrate for slings and 4"+ for adults. Never allow the enclosure to be more than two times their diagonal leg span high above their substrate, as a fall from any higher could be catastrophic

Temperatures:

Ideally, keep them in the mid 70° range with a bit of wiggle room in either direction. Temperatures consistently below 65° or above 85° should be avoided.

Humidity:

60%-70%. Slings should stay on lightly moist substrate. Adults should have a water dish and a corner of their enclosure that goes through a wet/dry cycle (moistening the substrate and then leaving it alone until it dries out).

Size:

Specimens sold by Josh's Frogs will be at least 3/4" at time of sale. Adults can reach up to 6" diagonal leg span.

Age:

B. klaasi babies sold by Josh's Frogs are at least 2-3 months old. Males reach 4-5 years, with females drastically outliving them at 20+ years.

Feeding:

At time of sale they are eating hydei fruit flies one time per week. Food should be about the size of the spider's carapace. Older spiders can eat less frequently, with adults eating every 10-14 days.

Sexing:

Due to age, B. klaasi spiderlings sold by Josh's Frogs are sold as unsexed. Specimens of 2.5"-3" diagonal leg span will be able to start being accurately sexed. The most accurate method is always molt sexing, the molt of a female tarantula of appropriate size will have spermatheca and a uterus externus in between the top two sets of book lungs that will appear as a "flap" that will catch and open if a pin is gently run down this section of the old exoskeleton. Males will have a much more plain slit that will not budge with attempts to manipulate it.

Coloration/patterning:

Slings are light brown, growing to a velvety black with pinkish brown feet!

Social behavior:

Brachypelma klaasi are not social creatures and any attempt to cohabitate will likely result in cannibalism.

Breeding:

Spiders for breeding purposes should remain supervised when together and should only be attempted when they are well fed. Mature males can be put in the enclosure of a mature female for courtship/mating. Remove male promptly after insertion is observed, or immediately if female is aggressive rather than receptive.

Natural Range:

Mexico

A healthy, wonderful little sling!

Lightning fast shipping! About 19 hours from when I spoke to a representative of Josh's Frogs to update my shipping speed, to when I found my spider on my doorstep. My 1/4 inch sling arrived securely in a small test tube packed with damp paper towels to keep up humidity, which itself was packed securely packed in a deli cup with temperature and humidity packs. It has settled in and already has a healthy appetite. Thank you so much!
