    I've bred them before and they are super easy to rear as babies

    I hope more people start breeding them, I'm having the same problem as the OP.

    Ugh Western Union. Definitely best not to do it. Hopefully they'll accept the other payment method.

    Probably one reason alot of people don't breed them is because how potent their venom is. Hopefully more show up for sale soon.
    Yeah whenever somebody asks for Western Union it throws up a red flag for me. Also, he just joined that fourm on Thursday. So that throws up a red flag even more. He still hasn't messaged me with a new payment method. So it doesn't look like it will happen.

    Yes their venom is very potent but since they can't climb smooth surfaces and are supposed to be completely non-aggressive there's really no good reason not to breed them.

    Agreed 100%. But with humans being thick as mince I can still understand it.

    I used Western Union once and got burned. Never again. Surprised they are still around.

    - best way to give your money to someone and not get anything in return - if truth in advertising was really a thing.

    Paypal is what I use 95% of the time. I've used Zelle and Google wallet a couple of times also. I don't even understand why anyone would ever use Western Union.

    Ok now I know that guy was a scammer. His other payment methods were Amazon gift cards and cryptocurrency. Only scammers would ever ask for Amazon gift cards as payment. Oh well I guess the search continues...

    Ask him if he would happen to have (insert very rare or nonexistent species) as well. That’s another indicator.

    I should ask him if he has any Typhochlaena Seladonia for sale. At a low price of $80 in Amazon gift cards.

    Just got a email back from Anastasia. She said she doesn't have any for sale. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

    Just ask around, they're out there. If all goed well I might have some for sale.

    I was just hoping to get one before it gets to cold here. I've been looking around all the fourms and facebook groups and no one has any for sale. Actually one guy did have one for sale but they never messaged me back and took down the WTS post. If you get any for sale, you atleast know one person that would definitely buy one.
     
  17. Tarantula Canada has them for 60$ but I think u have to order over 1000$ to get it shipped to the states......you’ll take like 18 though, right? So that’s not a problem

    Are you breeding them?

    It is illegal to order from them unless you go through fish and wildlife.
