Well this isnt your normal tarantula habitat but nevertheless we collected T´s on this very wall.... Anybody who wants to guess the species? Its in Asia and the wall is situated in a major city with absolutely no nature in sight only bricks, concrete and garbage

Can't see the pic for some reason, but with the area and clues I'll guess Poecilotheria subfusca
