    I went to a LPS today and the lady told me that she could get Grammostola rosea white. Has anyone ever heard of this species? If so do you have a pic or link to show me what they look like? Thanks

    She probably means Grammostola sp. "North" (sometimes called sp. "Norte)

    I think your right bliss. I just did a search on yahoo and came up with some pics. They are pretty cool looking. How much do they usually run? I've never even heard of them.

    I just did a google myself, Very pretty, You should see how much she has to get for one.

    I think I will. After looking around a bit they look really cool. I'm a big rosea fan not only because they docile, but because they are pretty, and are very aggressive eaters. (in my experience anyway).

    so far i haven't seen any evidence that suggests a "white" rosea is nothing more than a Grammostola sp north. then again, i haven't seen anything suggesting they are the same either... other than looks.

    Both of those links show absolutely stunning T's. I'm gonna order a few from that LPS and see what they look like. I'll take some pics and show you guys. Maybe we will get lucky and she will have something nice.

    Which pet store is it? Sometimes Plano Pets gets some good stuff in (that's where I got my SIngapore Blue).

    Cool T, I'll have to get one of these.:D
     
  17. Where is that anyway? All I'm surrounded by are cruddy mom and pop stores with sponges in their dishes, PetCo, and PetSmart (who doesn't carry Ts period)

    Well the place I'm talking about can only get males, go figure. Its called pet land. Look them up since your from arlington. The manager there was great! I ordered a couple of red roseas from her and picked up a few avic avics yesterday.
     

  19. Oh ok. If it's the one in Lincoln Square...I'm wondering if they are still under investigation for animal cruelty? It had something to do with the way they were keeping the dogs.

    I couldn't say. Yesterday is the first time I've been in there. Everything looked clean and the T's were in good shape. I'm getting in a few more Saturday. We will se how they look.
