    I have 3 regalis T's and recently came accross a juvy Oranta... at least that is what it is labled as.. Thing is I cant't really tell it apart from my Regalis?
    What exactly is the difference?

    these pics were taken just at I got home, they had them in plastic dishes like 2 inches high, even had sponges in the water bowls.

    I practically it for free

    Hi,

    Judging from the general appearance of the specimen it seems highly probable to me that it is Poecilotheria fasciata. But we need a ventral shot for a proper identification.

    Regards,

    We are not a fortune-tellers to know that.

    We need to take a look at the colour pattern of the ventral side of the body to be able to say anything more precisely.

    My guess would be either a P. regalis or a P. pederseni. They have similar markings on the carapace and legs. You need to get a photo of the ventral side to get a more positive ID.

    It is also proved there that this method is insufficient for identification... ;-)
