    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.

    Stuart Longhorn commented on "Threats":

    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

    Stuart Longhorn commented on an older version of Biology:

    The peak mating period is probably the autumn and winter, after females moult. Wild mature males are commonly encountered much later in the year, through november and december. Mating can occur throughout the 'winter' and into spring.
