This is my Ornata female.
Nice...welcome to the group.
Hello and welcome.
I've only recently acquired two young P. ornata and I'm enjoying them immensely, but I have much to learn about them. Yours is a very attractive spider.
Hello and welcome. Lovely T, I have a young one that is an utter nutcase.
Thank you! Glad to be aboard!
Thank you!Most of the Ornata are, mine is skidish, but hasn’t shown a threat posture. Most of them I have seen have been aggressive. This is the first one I’ve seen that isn’t.
Thank you! The pokies are my favorite of all the T’s. Love the color contrasts and beautiful
Patterns. I have 4 now, but have owned all the species at one time or another. Trying to get a Subfusca to add. I have a Regalis, Rufilata, Metallica, and Ornata.
I have two ornata and two rufilata. All are skittish and none have shown any sort of threat or aggressive posture. When I touch their enclosures for feeding and maintenance, they all quickly teleport back into their hides. They all tend to be out in the open on a regular basis and I see them daily, but not once I start messin' with their enclosures. I've even seen a few lighting fast prey snatch and grabs. I'll bet those little roaches got a bad case of whiplash just before they died.
Tigrinawesseli is the next one I'm after.
Lol! Mine stay hid most of the time except my metallica. She stays out. She is believe it or not aggressive. Only Metallica I’ve ever owned that has been. Only time I see the others out is when they are hungry. I usually feed them, then back to the hide the go. I have actually seen a thread on a pair of hunamavillasumica and tiginiwesseli on here for sale. Not sure how far they are away from you but they are on the site.
Somebody caught poeci fever
I did... I've got 18
Ya got me... I’m at 15 total between regalis, subfusca, ornata, smithi, metallica, formosa and so far my favorite, rufilata.
The rufilata is a subadult female and the ornatas are just sling so I’ll try to give them a chance at favorite.
I absolutely do!
