Brachypelma auratum, commonly known as the Mexican Flame Knee is truly one of the most beautiful tarantulas in the world. Brachypelma auratum is a reasonably docile species, which is far more prone to defence than attack. That said, this is a skittish species, with some fearsome urticating hairs. The Mexican Flame Knee is a reasonably slow-growing species, with adults taking an estimated 4-8 years to reach maturity in the wild.
