    Im with the big guy... Ruler picture is required when you say something like 10.5".
     
  7. Sorry I was going off what I was told this is obviously incorrect

    Nice!!!..LP can possibly make it to 10.5, I think the biggest Pulchripes recorded was a 8 inch female....Either way those are some monster numbers..

    In theory...But I have yet to see an "official" 10" female, let alone more than that...
     
  11. Thanks fran :D that's what I thought you guys think 70 was a good price for both girls?

    Wouldn't be surprised to see a 10 inch Lasiodora Parahybana someday, perhaps yours is close?! They look very nice! My L. para is only 6.5" ish, so I hope to get her up there to 8" or 9" someday! Very nice buys, biggins usually cost a pretty penny.

    Diagonal leg span looks to be a solid 7+ inches. Still nothing to sneeze at. Congrats on your new Ts. Good $, too.

    Nice T's mate, I wish mine would get a bit bigger, hasn't molted for ages and it's only like 2 inches (the whole spider, not legs) and it is still eating and drinking well which is good :)

    Anyway on-topic; Nice pictures you got of 'em :D! Looking pretty beast at the moment aha, maybe they'll get bigger like you hope them to, Buy a decent tank for them to live in with whatever is best for them :)

    ~thanks
