#MYWCO2012

Brachypelma smithi is a species of spider in the family Theraphosidae native to Mexico. It has been confused with Brachypelma hamorii as  both have been called Mexican redknee tarantulas. Mexican redknee tarantulas are a popular choice as pets among tarantula keepers.

B. smithi is a terrestrial tarantula native to Pacific coast of the Mexican state of Guerrero. Brachypelma smithi is a large spider in which the female can reach up to 2-2.3 inches for body length and male can reach only up to 1.7 to 1.9 inch in body length. The legs and palps of this tarantula  are bluish black with three distinctly colored rings: dark reddish orange on the part of the patellae closest to the body with light yellowish pink further away, pale yellowish pink on the lower part of the tibiae, and pinkish white at the end of the metatarsi.

Adult males have a yellowish brown carapace the upper surface of the abdomen is black. Adult females vary more in carapace color and pattern.
