Gooty Ornamental Tree Spiders (Poecilotheria metallica) are a medium to large arboreal species growing to a maximum size of 18cm and are native to deciduous forest in Andhra Pradesh, in central southern India. They are a highly sought after arboreal spider for spider keepers due to their impressive colouration, but are not recommended for beginners. They tend to be quite defensive and are quite fast. These are one of the few tarantula species known to live communally.
