This little guy has been stuck unlabeled in a pet store for some time. They eventually labeled him as a "mysore ornamental"(Poecilotheria striata) but I'm not really convinced. Anyone know what this guy is? The belly is black with red around the fangs and iridescent rainbow feet.
I apologize for the inferior quality if the picture, but I had to take it while the taking was good. Those of you who keep these little beasties know how reclusive they are. Fortunately, for me anyway, I fed this juvie last evening, it pounced, and for some reason just took a chill for a bit.
The first time I actually got a picture of her out. This species of T. is so reclusive that I can't even get it to come out for a full body shot. But this is the closest I can get this species out for a picture. Cool to see her, but a reclusive species as well.
First, I will be the first to admit (so comments in this regard are unnecessary) it’s from a quality standpoint a crap picture. However, I had to snap with my phone because I knew it wouldn’t last. I turned the lights on and the H. mac & S. cal stayed put! I think they may be conspiring...
