James!!
I see you have come back to dark side :starwars: :spider: :happy: >
Welcome back.

As Ceratogyrus said, Respect is key, working smart.
The best advice I would give to you is do any re-housing out side on the grass.

But Once apon a time you gave me advice on keeping feather leg baboon spiders. All those years ago.
So Pokies wont be that much difficult, they actually more relaxed and easier to keep.
They tend to hide first, run second and defend later
They are awesome to keep.

Check out Hendriks site ( www.tarantulacafe.co.za )
He has both tigrinawesseli and ornata I think as well as L.violaceopes.
Pokies are fast, but not aggressive or mean.

It was around 2009 more or less.

Pokies are much more relaxed than OBTs,
All my Pokie girls go hide when I open there enclosures, when I have to re-house them I have to basically force them out of there enclosure to get them out. They normally hold on with every leg they can.
And they often head for the top of the enclosure and head straight back down to hide again.

They are really worth having in your collection.
They are stunning to look at. And their size also adds to the coolness of keeping them!

You should enjoy it!

I once rehoused a P ornata juvie, was unable to get him off his log into new enclosure. So I took out the entire log, by hang, without it moving a muscle. Consider the more potent venom, it will be unpleasant if bitten, but the chances are less than with S cal or OBT. My P cambridgei and P pulcher are much more threat pose prone.

My First T was a p.fasciata(10cm). until now its been my best behaved T. Like the guys said... hides, or runs(very very quickly). a Definate must!

Snakes!? Pfffft NO! to smooth! i like them hairy
