Redknee Tarantula is considered to be the most docile
of the tarantula species, but when threatened, it will
display its' red bristles and drop them from its' body.
The small hairs can cause a painful rash and possible
blindness if they come in contact with sensitive areas
such as exposed skin, nasal passages, or eyes of another
animal. It has two hollow fangs, which inject venom
during a bite. They make very popular pets. Its eight
eyes are located just above its mouth, giving it both
forward and rear vision. Even though it has many eyes,
it has very poor vision and must rely on sensitive leg
hairs to guide itself.
