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 Wessel Tiger Ornamental (P.tigrinawesseli) is one of the newer species to appear in the hobby and is a lighter grey colour than many of the others. As with all Poecilotheria spiders I would take great care as it has been reported that their venom is more potent than most other pet tarantulas. I have only been bitten by one Poecilotheria, a P.metallica spiderling, it was only tiny but I still felt it. I was amazed that such a small spider could pierce the skin, let alone sting like that! 

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.
