  2. GK.

    GK. Arachnopeon

    H. maculata
    E. Murinus
    A. versicolor
    B. smithi
    B. emilia
    And maybe some kind of pokie.

    Those are all I'm really looking at getting right now. And the Atlanta Repticon is coming up so we'll see if a can scratch a couple off that list. ;)

    Great list! other than the H. mac :eek: I'll never own one. But I'm not saying you shouldn't.

    Hope you get everything you want at Repticon! I love expos :)
  4. Hi Toni/all,

    P.ornata.....will be able to cross this one off "want" list soon.
    B. albiceps
    B. auratum
    B. klaasi
    C schioedtei
    Xenesthis immanis or just about any of the few spp available.
    P. subfusca "lowland"

    I guess no 1 would actually be to get my female pulchra back. No 2 would be no more friggin escapes for cryin out loud! 2 in a two month period. I've kept several + hentzi over the past 30 years and only had 1 other escape which was found- as my klugi recently was.

    Anything big, female, and relatively inexpensive excluding overly common species. What's always on my list are Aphonopelma species. I was just reminded of the existence of A. bicoloratum. That will be a priority if I see it at a show. Maybe a female Poecilotheria of any species would be a nice replacement for the male P. regalis who's probably going to mature next molt, but I'm not made of money, so that likely won't happen for a while.

    I want to get it to ~50 spiders and quit adding anything to my collection for a year.
  6. Oops, forgot H. mac and S calceatum. They'd be near the bottom, though.

  7. Iridopelma seladonium
    Avicularia diversipes female ***
    Avicularia sooretama
    Phormingochilus everetti
    Heterothele gabonensis
    Tapinauchenius subcaeruleus MM ***
    Idiothele sp. "blue foot"

    *** - If anyone has these, and are willing to part with them, P.M. me ASAP. :)

    I knew that posting this would lead me to Ts I hadn't heard of yet ;) Thanks!

    Another one I didn't know about.

    I'm sorry about your escapes. Are they still roaming your house?

    Not to many species I'm currently looking for but the ones I'd really like to get our:

    Ornithoctonus costalis
    Ornithoctonus andersoni
    Chilbrachys stridulans
    Lyrognathus lessunda
    Lyrognathus fuscus
    Lyrognathus achilles

  16. We have a lot of what we wanted, all we still really want is:

    Poecilotheria subfusca "highland"
    Monocentropus balfouri
    Xenesthis intermedia
    Xenesthis immanis
    Pamphobeteus ultramarinus
    Megaphobema peterklaasi
    Sphaerobothria hoffmani
    Brachypelma boehmei

    That's about it.

    I need more Avics.. 4 just isnt enough!

    Apart from my wishlist usually just appear in my head when I see a purty T for sale=p
  18. Not always, but this more often pertains to long-time collectors and breeders. New sp and rarities are a hot commodity there and understandably so. My hat's off to 'em but I'll stick to what I have along with the few terrestrials and even fewer arboreals in my want list.

    M peterklaasi brought to memory by Cass is very interesting and mesomelas is about the best looking t out there. However, I'm not ready for this cool temp, wet loving genera which IMO =mold and/or fungus amongus.

    GBB are cool but colors tacky and a bit too shocking. I'll name it pennywise if I get one.

    P. ornata is FERRIKIN AWESOME!

    Boo, the female pulchra is still awol. I do the occasional "ahem, dropped a crick" along with a shallow waterbowl near the fridge. Dangit! I've changed some things up a bit and hopefully this won't happen again. :wall::wall::)

  19. Chris_Skeleton

    Chris_Skeleton Arachnoprince

    A. versicolor
    Any brachypelma
    G. pulchra
    At least one Aphonopelma
    All of the Psalmo's
    E. campestratus
    OBT (Fun fun fun)
    Any Ephebopus

    And the ones I'll probably never have
    Xenesthis spp.
    Pamphobeteus spp.
    Megaphobema spp.
    And of course P. metallica

    And the many ones that I saw in the Genus galleries that aren't in the hobby that I would die to have
