    I did pay $275 for my Poecilotheria miranda MF, but I did buy it locally so at least there was no shipping.

    $50 is my limit, though the Pampho I want is going to more than double it...:arghh:
    $50 for my B. boehmei (she was originally $100 but was half-dead due to poor care so I talked them down), $50 for a juvie GBB, $50 for a 1" G. pulchra sling.

    100 Euro (a little more than 100 $) is my definite limit. I spent that much on female juveniles/subadults 1 each:

    X. immanis
    D. diamantinensis
    P. antinous

    I circumvented that rule and bought two 2i slings of M. mesomelas for 65 Euro each because I really wanted that species but I didn't want to pay like 200 Euro for a sexed female.... and I got 1.1 out of the slings :smuggrin:

    The most expensive tarantula I've ordered was a 2.5inch female E. cyanognathus for $49.
    The cost of shipping for me generally is $45.
    I figure I might need to start buying more expensive (or more at one time) tarantulas in order to make the shipping cost seem more reasonable ;)

    Avicularia versicolor female = $195 (my first ever tarantula purchase - I was struggling to find any of my adult T choices as a first T) I wouldn't pay this now.
    E. sp. red female = $125

    EDIT* Oops! I meant Caribena versicolor :)

    Imma <-- Italian female name, also -- an incredible cheapskate when it comes to T's, to the point that I advocate even cough cough... 'Communism' cough, when it comes to Theraphosidae.

    A new 'Koba' should arise and create a brand new 'enthusiasts keepers heaven' called UTPR:

    250 euros for a juvenile 0.1 Poecilotheria metallica. This was many years ago. I sold it and got 450 euros. :D

    Edit: 250 euros is about 270 dollars.
