Scientific Name: Poecilotheria fasciata
Common Names: Sri Lankan Ornamental
Not for beginners. Lightning fast from sling to adult as with most Poecilotheria species, this tarantula will grow large and gorgeous. It’s venom is potent and although not necessarily an aggressive or defensive bird spider, it will gladly deliver a nasty bite if provoked or if given the right reasons. The bites are very painful and can result in hospitalization for a careless or unlucky keeper.
Poecilotheria are a large and rewarding Old World species to keep, do your research and as always, respect your tarantula.
