Gorgeous Tarantula, BUT BE WARNED

+WARNING TO NEW KEEPERS+
The Indian Ornamental is in the top 10 most venemous spider list, it won't kill you per say but you will need to go to hospital if you get bitten by one of these spiders.

This is the P.Regalis species of the genus and is probably the most commonly kept of them. That being said they are a very nice spider to look at, they are mostly grey and black in pattern with a striking yellow underneath on the legs.

They are VERY skittish and EXTREMELY fast so be careful when spot cleaning/re-housing. They are also fanastic to feed, they hunt the prey and strike at lightning speed.

They require a tall tank with some sort of hollow hide (log/corkbark) in which to setup home in, will do well in a warm home environment.
