    how much are they usually.. There is a guy on the Trade/sale forum that is selling them for $600, to me that is outragiouse and rediculouse

    If your referring to B. pruett, hes selling 2 adult females and a large male.
    Technically, its only outrageous if your not willing to spend that kind of money. If you have $600 to blow and you really want a G. pulchra, its not so rediculous =P.

    no not a B. pruett i mean a Grammostola Pulchra
  4. Bobby Pruett is a person, and he is selling two adult females and a male. {D B. Pruett is not a species.

    ya that is what i meant B. pruett is seelling them, why so much??
  7. Well it's because the group is hard to put together. 2 adult females would sell by them selves for 200-250. And a male for 100+. You don't just find females for sale every day and raising a sling to adulthood might take you 10 years + :wicked: Maybe not that long but it would be a while!

    I have a feeling that a B. pruett sp. of tarantula would prolly end up kicking all our asses. ;P :wicked: {D

    I got lucky and picked one up at a local pet store for $60 with the cage it was in. i dont think they knew what a G. Pulchra is worth its about 4" not sure on sex yet. IM still pretty new to this although ihave had Avic Veriscolor for about 3 years . I just recently went overboard with T's.

    there's no such thing as overboard with T's man, you can never have too many! Awesome find tho at the pet store for 60 with a tank. I bought a big (4.75-5 inches) female once from a pet store for $80 a couple years back. These people had no clue what there were doing!

    I just paid $120 for two G. pulchra slings. They are expensive because the supply is low. I am happy with them and I hope they both turn out to be female.{D

    A 4" Female here where live sold for $300, actually it was $299 but with tax well over $300.

    I got a guaranteed female a little under 4" for £40 (about $80), about 2 years ago. I thought she was expensive, but G. pulchra are pretty much impossible to find in the UK so it was worth it. Now I know how hard they are to get most places, £40 seems like a pretty good deal for a girl. I just hope I can breed her when she's big enough. If there's one thing this hobby could definitely do with, it's more pulchra!
