    So I have 2.5inch female P metallica sling, how much would one of those cost in the US?

    Depends on the seller, which prices may vary from seller to seller. My estimation that I would be pricing it would be somewhere between 130-150 at that size. But take my pricing with a grain of salt. As every seller offer different prices, some more and some less.

    LOL, when did they become that readily available to the point the price was that low. :troll:

    P. met slings sell for around 60-90 per sling now. Which is no surprise for me on the price drop for a while. But what I'm amazed is how much @14pokies is selling his female for locally. Females are still worth something for the P. met since the pokie genus is flooded with males.

    When comes to the pokie genus, i've had seen and owned more males than females. If i'm wrong, it's either because of my terrible luck or something involving terrible RNG luck for me.

    There was an AF at the show I went to today for $300. Seems high to me though.

    I'm leavin the hobby so everything I have is priced fairly competitively, however I do think $75-125 bucks is pretty fair for a young female P.met these days.. They are bred regularly in captivity now so there is plenty of stock to meet demand.

    On average I work 70hrs a week and trying to keep up with all the spiders and monitor lizards is just too much work on top of my family obligations.. I also just had to dump 4k into my car so now I'm trying to rebuild my bank roll. Lol..

    I will likely always have a T or two but I don't see myself ever building the collection into the triple digits again..

    I understand what your saying.I was at that point about a year ago to the month.
    Back to 5 T.s now,and that's a good number for me.Oh,ok maybe a few more.I think what
    bothers me the most,is the ones I let go of,i may never get the chance to own again.
    But.family is family,and T,s are T,s.Best wishes,my friend.

    What a bummer to read the above. The price you have is a great one for a young female.

    I paid 149.99 USD for my female when she was less than 2" DLS. Maybe like 1.75". This was in 2012.
