Old World Arboreal Tarantula

Not a beginner Tarantula


  • This is a robust spider and it makes a good display tarantula.
  • This species is the most common of the Pokies. If you like arboreals, you probably will end up with this species.
  • This Pokie has a ghostly appearance with beautiful markings. The under legs are a bright lemon yellow.
  •  Because of its speed, and toxin, this species is not recommended as a beginner tarantula.
  • Ideal temperature 25°-28°C and the humidity at 65%-75%.
  • The substrate in the terrarium is kept dry; mist once a week and monthly, then allow it to dry out completely.
  • This is a arboreal tarantula.
  • As spiderling or juvenile, I put a twig in  the vial so it may climb.
  • When they get 7cm house them in their permanent enclosures.
  • They should be given a vertical branch or cork to climb upon.
  • Their enclosure should be taller than longer.
  • A 25cm vertical bark leaned against the cage. 
Food Consumption: 
  • Feed slings twice a week.
  • Feed adults once a week.
  • Food size should be the size of the carapace.
Water Requirements: 
  • Glue a small container for water to the bark and mist.
Growth Rate: 
  • This is a fast growing tarantula. 
  • Adult leg span 17cm.
  • This is a very fast moving spider.
  • It is not what I would consider a defensive tarantula, but will probably bite if provoked.
