General info: This stunning, highly sought after species of tarantula is one of the favorites in the Brachypelma genus. As the common name indicates, the lower part of the boehmei legs are a fiery red to orange and have long orange hairs that give it an even more commanding presence. They are spunky and never fail to put on a show at feeding time. Boehmei spiderlings aggressively take down good size prey at a young age, making them easier to feed than many others. As juveniles they will even jump up to grab food right off the tong, so be careful not to have your fingers too close! This genus is known to be long-lived, hardy, and easy to care for – with females often living 20 years or longer and males as long as 10. This is an excellent display species because they stay out in the open often and are active even during the day. They tend not to burrow as long as there is a hide to use when needed. Even at an inch you can see some adult coloration on this very delightful species.
