Thanks for the replies friends. Hamza, that was the best drawing I've seen for this beautiful species.

Basically, these species reach around 13cm of leg span once they reach adulthood. Mexican Red Knee is considered to be one of the most docile Tarantula species and hence newbie's breed to keep. Males can live upto 3-4 years and females for around 20 years. They need to be kept in 23-25C temperature and for colder areas, there are heat packs available. They are venomous but not to an extent of killing a human, their venom is considered to be as venomous as bee bite.

Currently I'm keeping them in glass cube of around 5x5x5" in size with pit moss as substrate. The adults are being fed mealworms (3-4) every after 4 days. Uneatean food is to be removed a day later immediately.
