Food Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli

There are no special rules for feeding this tarantula, practically the only obligation of the owner is to provide him with food, because from here on the tarantula will take care of everything.Features Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli

Specimens of this species are arboreal, with a temperament similar to all representatives of this genus. Morphologically, the species resembles Poecilotheria miranda. Data on maximum size, longevity or behavior are scarce, so it is difficult to describe a model that can be applied to most specimens. The specimen I own is a juvenile female of about 10 cm legspan. So I can't say much about it because Poecilothers at this stage Stay most of the time in the tunnel or nest they build. Like any tarantula of this genus, it is very fast, but has never tried to bite, a characteristic that it will probably acquire with age.


Being an arboreal tarantula, it needs more space vertically than horizontally, also can be added branches on which the animal can climb and possibly a bark in which it can hide. The temperature and relative humidity of the air are the same as in the other species belonging to this genus, namely: 22 – 26 degrees Celsiu temperature and 70% relative humidity.


All species of tarantulas possess venom. Although it is not very potent, bites are never placute.De like any species of tarantula and Poecilotheria tigrinawesseli can be unpredictable and a bite can occur at any time. It should also be noted that data on the venom of this species is scarce. For these reasons we recommend maximum attention when the tarantula is fed, moved or when its terrarium is cleaned. [2] it is not recommended to handle tarantulas, especially by those without experience.
