Four mouths ago I bought a P. regalis from a reptile show. How cool I thought my first pokie! At first I had her in a petpal, but she always ran out of it when I would take the lid off. After three weeks of playing chase the pokie I spent a good four hours modifing a ten gallon tank for her. To make it escape proof I bought a lid that had a sliding portion and siliconed the lid on. I then set it up real nice, the wole nine yards. It has cork bark, silk plants, sticks for food items to climb on. Well three nights later I put her in her new home I had made and went to bed. The next morning I get up to find that during the night a stick has fallen and that my pokie was gone. I was in horror, how in the world would I find "lightning bolt"? Well at closer inspection I find that she is not loose (thank God) and has made herself a nice little home at the base of the branch that had fallen. Well a few mouths later I am forced to be content with only seeing my pokie seldomly. What I'm getting at is how funny things turn out when you expect something. I just knew she would be the best display tarantula, and of corse it's not so. Guess thats what I get for thinking.
