Would it be advisable to do a 6-12 inch wide by 3-5 feet tall plexiglass enclosure for a P. regalis? Pros? Cons? Ideas? Kim

All that space For only one poke? What about a colony?

How many would be very, very comfortable in there? 2-3? Males or females only is what I would want, no babies. Can you do that? Can they be introduced at different times or do they have to be introduced at the same time? Kim

Could work, but it seems kind of awkward to have it so narrow.

I agree with mike it would be a bit narrow, ideally you want some space to be able to move around in there for cleaning etc

Nono...Actually quit good space you have there. Okay maybe abit more 10inches maybe? But arboreal height is more important than terrestial space! It shows in Poecilotheria colonies, the less space you have, with alots of hiding places, the chances for cannibalism to break out, is decreased seriously.

I was worried about it being easy to knock over on accident if it were that narrow.
