    They are very common over here in Europe in the hobby. And Im glad for that, since they are very cool and interesting spiders!

    I didnt see my 2nd female yesterday at all. But when I looked at them before I went to bed she was out in the open. Very good to hide under the sand! :)
     
  14. How hot are these compared to Latrodectus? What's there temperment like? They look amazing and I'm interested in keeping them.

    Edit: Never mind..did some research. I wouldn't keep these. Pretty to look at though

    Their venom is similar to Loxosceles. But it may be more toxic than the Loxosceles venom.

    That's Hahnii.

    The common name for Terrosus is 'Cave Spider,'
     
  19. They don't live in caves though, do they?

    These guys have venom which is similar in effect to loxosceles, but many times more potent. From what I've read, a bite from these guys would be very likely to kill you.

    They're also somewhat docile, researchers have accidentally picked them up by hand when working in the feild.

    Still not something I'll be keeping anytime soon, though.
