The Indian ornamental is a pretty spider, with your typical ornamental markings on the legs and abdomen. I find them to be a bit easier to keep than most other ornamentals as they are calmer, even though they are just as quick and shy. They like to hang out in wedges and corners of their enclosures away from the objects in with them for some reason, so they are pretty easy to spot pretty much all the time. They do seem a bit lazy though, as once they are comfortable, they will stay in their straightened out stick formation for quite some time. They are good eaters, and seem to be easy to keep healthy, so not a bad species for a beginner with ornamentals.
