Finally I'm proud owner of Poecilotheria metallica female :cool:
And she was kind enough to let me film her strolling around my living room :laugh:

If that was how it was packed to be shipped to you, it was just awful, I can't believe it survived.

Aside from that :wall:

Agreed! Omg horrible packing job!!!! Scary bad! Can't imagine her arriving unscathed after being shipped like that. Sooooo lucky the ups guy didn't shake the package.

Congrats on ur new addition, what a beaut!

I certainly hope she doesn't have any internal injuries. Keep an eye on her for the next few weeks. I can't believe anyone would ship like that!

Yes,really bad packing there,glad she arrived alive for you.She should have been "packed tight" in a container surrounded by paper towels,to where she couldn't move around her container.

My 1st thoughts when he opened the box. I'm just glad she appears to be okay...

To OP. Congrats on your new addition! She sure is pretty!

There is no 'everyone's favorite' tarantula; it certainly wouldn't be if Poecilotheria if there was.

I couldn't agree more; It's just thread name, not a serious statement. :D
But you can't deny that metallica got that wow effect, it's one of those tarantulas that, when you first see it you are like "omg I want that".

Can you remember when you first saw it?

I'm relatively new to hobby so I can, I saw it when I was researching for my first T...I couldn't believe that "spider" can be blue and
look like that...and it's kinda a big thing for me that I got it now :3

Everyone has different tastes and preferences. My hubby also LOVES P. Metallica. But I'm like "meh".. i'm more for M. Balfouri, psalmopoeus spp. and Cyriopagopus spp. :p

But I get what you meant OP :) a lot of people gush and drool over metallica, especially newcomers.

Blue is relatively common in the tarantula world, much more so than red, green, etc.

With the speed and venom potential, the average tarantula person shouldn't own a Poecilotheria until they've got a few years of experience under their belt. There are many people that should never own a Poecilotheria.
