    6" Sri Lanken Ornamental female

    I've got a couple "tarantula for plant" trades under my belt now, so I thought it was time to offer some real beauty here.
    I've got a 6" P.fasciata (Sri Lanken Ornamental) female up for grabs. She's extremely chill, healthy, and ready for breeding. Her retail value is $100-$150. I would keep her, but I need the tank and space for upcoming breeding projects.

    She is posted on a couple tarantula forums, so if you want her better act fast.

    Tell me, HOW do you ship a giant spider?

    First, I line a deli cup (with ventilated lid) with moist paper towel. Gently coax her in.. put a little moist paper towel over the top of her to keep her from getting knocked about during shipping. Then I ship her in a large insulated shipping container.

    quite the opposite, if you can believe that. At that size.. they only get angry if repeatedly provoked by danger. She will be more than happy to wander out of the container, stretch her legs, and set up a new home. Like I said, she is extremely chill. And she comes out of her hide almost every night.. so you can always get a good look at her after dark. If she's angry, you'll know!!

    Does she bite?

    I must admit, it's been a loooong time since I've handled a tarantula.

    She's NEVER given a threat display.. or shown the slightest bit of aggression. She's a big scardy cat.. If she's out and I give her tank even the slightest bump, BOOM.. she's gone into her burrow. And I always advise AGAINST handling Poecilotherias.
