    Can't find any Aviculara Avicularia in the UK online at the moment. Have been looking for a few weeks. Anyone know where I can get one? I'm looking for a sub-adult/adult.

    I've only seen slings for sale lately, TheSpiderShop had subadults a couple of months ago, they'll probably get more in at some point.

    @Paul Larke The only place I know of right now with Avic avics in stock is tarantulas Bristol they are 2cm slings.
    Some people will say don't buy from tb but I've had now issues ever with them so it's entirely upto you.

    That's where I saw them, I've never had an issue ordering from them personally.

    They come up from time to time on RFUK classifieds.

    Thanks for the responses. I was looking for a sub-adult/adult rather than a sling, so I guess I'll just keep my eye out. As a quick note, my last tarantula, a juvie GBB, was from Tarantulas Bristol and the service was excellent. In fact I was given a free LP sling at the same time. I would definitely recommend them.

    Managed to find a sub adult A. Avic through the preloved website, being sold by 'Birmingham Reptiles and Pets'. Thanks for your post otherwise I don't think I would have found one as they seem to be out of stock everywhere at the moment!?! Must also recommend 'Birmingham Reptiles and Pets'. Excellent service, friendly staff and even though my previous tarantulas have been ordered from specialist dealers on the internet, this is the first time I've had a spider sent with a heat pack.

    Sorry, messed up that last reply. "They are very good at Birmingham Reptiles". My bad :p I did try to edit the post but the edit page never loads for me.

    my local pet shop (yeovil, Somerset) has a sub-adult for sale with terrarium, has been there for months. not sure if they would send it but worth an ask.

    Edit: just read that you found one.
