    Stuart Longhorn commented on "Threats":

    The Mexican redleg tarantula is mainly threatened by habitat loss and environmental degradation. They were previously threatened by capture for the pet trade (2), but now the pressure of illegal exports have likely been reduced by captive breeding.

    The information is out of data. The greatest threat is habitat loss and environmental degradation. Captive breeding has effectively removed the threat of pet-trade collection
