Poecilotheria rufilata (Red Slate Ornamental Tarantula)

Poecilotheria rufilata (Red Slate Ornamental Tarantula)

This may be the largest of the arboreals and it is an amazing tarantula!  This beautiful species seems graceful and purposeful in its every move.  They have yellow and green highlighting on their carapace and legs, and their underside looks to be adorned with jewels as each foot is iridescent blues and greens.  This species stays out in the open more than our other Poecilotheria do.  Ours have not been defensive, even when pulling the egg sac.   Many collectors have kept these communally with great success.  We are offering sets of 10 spiderlings that have been kept together  at a discounted rate.
