    Whats with the prices on these b klassi??? Does not seem to be any slings available. 3 1/2 to four inch t's at $350.00 to $375.00

    Comanding a higher price than m. balfouri, robustum ??? Are they hard to breed??? What is commanding the prices on this one??

  2. I've seen these on a wholesale list from time to time
    and according to the wholesaler they are "rare".

    I didn't order it tho..
    but I too would like to know why they are pricey.

    Tarantulas are great, but there are so many better things that one would spend that much money on. I'd rather just buy a nice flat screen tv and then watch a national geographic show on tarantulas on it.

    Can these "T.Vs" molt, lay egg-sacks, lay down webbing, dig 3-foot burrows or have teleportation abilities?

    Nope. But a $25 P. irminia can and with the leftover I still get the tv.

    I don't know man, I still kinda want to get that mature female P.metallica or Xenesthis. Plus they come in higher HD resolution than any 'T.V.' ;)

    Well, I can't say that I wouldn't want one or both myself. I just can't personally justify the price. For those that can, I will enjoy your pics on my new flat screen tv. {D

    i know how you feel spending that on a spider to me is something i still just can't talk myself into yet not when i havent spent more than 200 on reptiles in years and i've been in that hobby much longer
  16. I understand, recently got my taxes back and instead of buying a t.v i upgraded my collection with about $1000 in T's. But on the other hand i didnt add 3 i added about 26 or so... The more expensive T's i can only justify spending my tax return on. Kinda like free money the way i think of it.

    I figure that until I have ALL the awesome species avaliable that are well under $100, there is absolutley no point in paying several hundred dollars for a T.
    If prices equal quality, then B klaasi is 15-20 times better than a P irminia. I know that this is just not true. They are both awesome, and I would rather have an irminia + $350 than a klaasi. Or an irminia + a dozen other equally cool T's.
    If you are breeding then its a different story, but otherwise I view it just like someone paying $200 for a pair of Nikes when they could buy 5 pairs of something without the big brand name on the side.
    This is the view of someone who counts every dollar though- if you are well off financially, than it probably doesn't make a difference to you.
