Here's my beautiful girl "India" - Poecilotheria regalis.
She's 2 1/2 years old.




Into the new home we go ...


Sitting pretty



And to think, a month ago I said I wouldn't get a Pokie :?:eek:

Very Beautiful

India is indeed beautiful! You have missed the joy of her two and a half years of growing into that beauty. I'm sure you'll enjoy that with your next T.

Congrats. That is a great looking regalis. Of all my Pokies, the regalis is my favorite (well I am getting quite fond of my P. miranda). Good luck with her. Its too bad you didnt watch her grow up to that size. They grow so fast.

Well, she belonged to a friend who has sold/given away his collection. He suffers badly from the effects of U-hairs - especially brachys. He wants to concentrate on geckos and chameleons now.

I am considering a versicolour, an irminia and a pulcher - these are small so I'd get the opportunity to watch them grow up :)

I was never going to get a Pokie either. But look at that beauty, how can you not? And you make such nice enclosures, too. I hope you enjoy her.

They don't need the high heat and high humidity that everyone thinks. I have a ton of poec and they all sit in my living room on a couple of shelves. They all sit at room temp. For humidity, I mist a lot during the winter as I am in the midwest and it gets super dry! But during the summers, my temps are mid 70's and I just overfill the waterdish a bit into the substrate and they do just fine!

I paired my P.subfusca in my bathroom, gravid in my living room and dropped an eggsac in my bedroom closet next to my hanging suits! :)

Agreed! Mine do just fine in the low 70's with 40% humidity. I mist once a week and occasionally flood the substrate. Currently have 3 gravid females :D
