• 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! 

This animal is covered by CITES regulations, Annex B (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). I can no longer send to Northern Ireland. Please do not order these animals if your address is in Northern Ireland! If an animal is ordered in error I will remove the item from your order and refund the price of the animal (less the PayPal fee if applicable).

It is difficult to give a size for the spiders as stock is constantly changing. Generally, the small size is a spiderling up to 1.5cm body length (small will be SMALL), juvenile is a grown on spiderling with a body length of about 1.5cm, medium 2cm to 4cm and a large is 4cm to fully adult (but a lot depends on the species!)

I am happy to send a photo of any medium or large size spider that you are interested in, just email me!

All spiders are unsexed unless stated.
