Brachypelma boehmei also known as “Mexican fireleg” or “Mexican rustleg tarantula”, is a stunning brid spider due to its behavior and coloration from Mexico. Although the Brachypelma-genus is considered to be rather docile, Brachypelma boehmei is rather nervous. She won’t hesitate to shed her urticating setae in your direction. Don’t confuse the spider with Brachypema emilia or with her smaller look-a-like from another genus, Aphonopelma bicoloratum. Mature males of Brachypelma boehmei are quiet similar to their females, where an Aphonopelma bicoloratum mature male is black.
