right now i have one pokie and its a adult p. fasciata. shes verry cool and i would like to start looking into another member of this genis. so Far i realy like the p.ornata and the P rufilata and the P. pederseni are realy nice looking too. any opinions on the three that i picked and what is it about them that you like?... im totaly undecided about it and realy cant make up my mind.

I have the ornata and the rufilata and considering color and price, I really like the ornata. Suttle hughs of green with some bright yellow markings. Very nice contrast. I'm partial to green anyway. Ornata is my vote.

ya its the green that gets me but it seems like the redslate stands out a little more... then again theres price to consider... EHHHH ya i think i might be leaning a bit for the ornata..

Take a look at the green and yellow with the red hairs. This is a young one but I just think they are soooo pretty.

if I were you I would save my money and get a P. subfusca. They are most prettiest Pokies in my opinion. My P. subfusca is my fav. out of all my pokies.

Subfusca is one of my favs also. But i think the three prettiest are Ornata, Subfusca, Metallica. Considering price, for a first one I would go Ornata, then look at the higher end ones if you want to get more later on.

Just get the one you think you'll really like best. Chances are you'll eventually end up owning all of them one day anyways.

Exactly! I said I would stick with one and got a P. rufilata. Since then I have been rapidly trying to get them all. Pokies are great.

Don't rule out the P. Perderseni :clap: and others that have white/ black ventral startle bands. They are gorgeous in their own right. I'm also curious as to why P. Regalis is not on your list as this is surely among the most spectacular IMO. Low price does not negate beauty!! Good Luck! :)

Id say go with a P.ornata. I believe they are the most gorgeous pokies. Not couting metallica of course.

i love my ornata too and would recommend getting one.

temperament, size and markings wise, its my favorite pokie (although i only have a regalis, rufilata and miranda aside from the ornata and wouldnt really be able to comment on the other species i do not have).

For some reason P formosa is the unsung hero of Pokes. IMO they rival any as far as good looks are concerned even P subfusca
