Common names: Mexican Flame Knee

A beautiful member of the Brachypelma species, the Mexican Flame Knee is mostly covered in black setae/hairs with white/cream highlights at all the leg joints and then the most striking little red flame on each knee. Very skittish as youngsters but calming down as they age. They’re known to eat well and grow at a medium pace and have some burrowing tendencies but mostly as youngsters. As terrestrial adults you can expect them to be comfortable out in the open and they make stunning display tarantulas.

Brachypelma auratum is a tarantula endemic to the regions of Guerrero and Michoacán in Mexico. In appearance it is reminiscent of the quintessential Mexican red-kneed spider, Brachypelma smithi, albeit darker and with more discrete red striations on the patella.
