I guess I've become a little jaded after seeing a P metalica. I was hoping for something purple and green... Looks a lot like a P. Formosa.

Hi,

would be nice if there were more pics like ventral shots... the species on this pic looks like most Poecilotheria...
Where does it come from? Highland/lowland-species? Similarities/differences/characteristics?

i guess i shouldn't be too dissapointed, since most pokies look like that.

I think everyone's jaded by P. metallica...to top that it needs to be neon green and pink with bright red fangs. :}

I personnally think this one is stunning. I love the soft tan coloration. I would definately add this one to my spider family :)

Yeah i have to agree. They are all stunning T's, but after P.metallica I'm expecting them to start coming in day-glo colors!;)

Pretty! But I think all Pokies are...

I'm never have one of each if they keep discovering new ones :)

Great , if we start hyping it up now, maybe it will only be 400 bucks by the time it reaches the U.S.;)

Later, Tom

P. metallica's look nice in pictures, but I can't justify the price for one spider.

Like ShadowBlade, I think P. rufilata and P. subfusca are just as gorgeous, for a lot less money. ;)

Personally I like the look of this new one, if it is new. I like the soft colors of it.

Yeap, it's always very nice when a new species is discovered.

Personally, I like that new species, but none like a P. ornata or a P. miranda IMHO.

i dig it.. but im obsessed with pokies. I have 10 different sp. now, owned 11. And in my opinion, i like the subfusca more than the metallica.
