It's now called Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli . I'm sure someone can/will post a picture of them.

I don't find them to be all that exciting. If they looked different than other pokies I would understand the hype a little more. But I must say I still prefer the look of my female P. miranda, and they are cheaper.:)

thats the great thing! they DO look different than other pokies. thats like saying "irminia's and regalis look the same so whats the difference?"

Sorry, poor choice of words. I know they look different, but they are still very similar to P. formosa and P. miranda. If it was some cool new red pokie or something different like that I would understand the hype. I've seen pictures of adults and while they are nice, I still think P. miranda is nicer looking.

If they looked as different to other pokies as P. irminia does to P. cambridgei then that would be something!

I'm with you 100% Laura. In fact P miranda is prolly my favorite out of all of them. Cant say why, just a fact.

my favorite pokie is the subfusca, I have every pokie except that and the smithi.. each one is unique in its own way and my goal is to collect the whole set.

I would have to agree, having to choose between the 2 I would take P. miranda regardless of cost. Cheers Iggy
