Very similar in looks to the Mexican Red Rump with it’s velvety black appearance and glowing red rump setae/hairs, but probably slightly better looking and even more docile, the Guatemalan Red Rump is one calm customer.


Brachypelma sabulosum is commonly known as the Guatemalan Red Rump. Its scientific name has Greek and Latin roots meaning “short sole of the foot” and “sandy or gravelly”


Brachypelma sabulosum is a terrestrial species. 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 5 – 8cm of spider peat for slings and 10cm + for adults. Never allow your terrestrial spider more than two times their diagonal leg span as head space above their substrate as a fall from any higher could be catastrophic.
