• Poecilotheria regalis - Indian Ornamental Tarantula

Common Name:Indian Ornamental Tarantula
Scientific Name: Poecilotheria regalis

Status: Captive Bred  

Country of origin - India
Habitat: Tree dwelling
Suitability: Not for beginners, fast and venomous

My Opinion:
All the Poecilotheria tarantulas are large (as far I know) and beautiful. They are generally multi coloured with primarily white, grey and black but often with yellow and sometimes iridescent blue. The Indian Ornamental (Poecilotheria regalis) is the original Poecilotheria pet spider and is still one of the most stunning (in my opinion). They grow very big and have super colouring, including bright yellow bands on the legs. They are fast spiders and yet not normally overly aggressive. However it has been reported that their venom is more potent than other pet species so I would always take care. I almost came a cropper myself some years ago, when I opened a tank with a beautiful adult female in it, I hadn't realised until I was holding the lid that she was actually sitting under it!
