Hi guys! I've been reading some threads on here regarding temperament of tarantulas and whether or not holding them can calm them down a bit and the answer seems to be "definitely not". So, that being said, my Mexican red knee is so aggressive and ornery it's almost funny sometimes. Handling her is certainly out of question, but I'm just wanting to know why she is like that. From what I understand, the Brachypelma smithi are supposed to be really docile and I would like to know what went wrong with her!!! Just out of plain curiosity, I know there's no changing Petunia.. Lol. Thanks so much!
