hey

WOW! Vayu son great pics! I am very interested in these T's and really want one, but they look to fast, mean, aggressive and very scary! But all in all they are beautiful!

Here's one of ours... They really show off those long orange-red leg hairs at this stage.

As long as we're showing off baby pictures, here's one of mine!

Note: the usual Poke-handling disclaimer applies. All tarantulas have venom and are capable of biting, and members of the genus Poecilotheria *may* possess a more venomous bite than most. Handling them is not generally recommended and should be done only with a full understanding of the risks involved (I'm tempted to add "or after ingesting large quantities of alcohol" here, but somebody might take me seriously ;) ).

What I dig about pokes is their body structure... their legs always tend to sit front and back making them look very long as opposed to other T's that look more round.

Pokes are the only thing lacking in my collection up to now... something I shall have to remedy soon.
