    man i want to get one of these so bad...if i was able to convince the wife, where/who would I go to get one...I hear that they're hard to get is an under statement.
     
  6. At the moment yes they are hard to get. But wait till mid spring and I bet there will be more egg sacs and that means more young for sale. From last year to this year the price took a nice nose dive, although they won't get much cheaper then 100-150 for a small sling I don't think.

    Well if anyone has any P. Metallicas at some point let me know. PM or something.
     
  8. *sigh* mine always just looks blackish, even at 4". I think it must be my horrible lighting. :(
     
  9. Yeah hopefully I am getting one soon. We'll see! *fingers crossed*

    Maybe you got the black morph. Those are really nice too.

    Mine stays very blue until they are about to molt. Then they are brownish.
