What is the most money you have spent on a T? Or any invert for this matter?

$220.00 for two 8-inch legspan wildcaught T. blondi that, after molting, turned out to be female but were not sold as a definite sex.

$155 for a Poecilotheria miranda sling. I once paid $90 for a wild caught adult female Citharischius crawshayi that lived a whopping 4 weeks.:rolleyes:

125 for a supposed Xenesthis monstrosa s'ling.(Hey, the sales pitch was very convincing! Still, I'm a bit wiser now.) I'm pretty sure I was taken for a ride on that one. Still waiting for it to be large enough to taxonomize a molt...which should be very soon. It's just sealed itself in so anytime now. When I can prove it's not what it was sold as, I do expect compensation from the dealer as well.

Um... I think you've been ripped off badly. Lividum only costs around 20-40 bucks.

Was that $80.00 for the H. lividum with or without the shipping? That is alot of $ for a cobalt.

The most I've paid for a T was $75 for a 3"+ A. purpurea.

Well if that $80 for the cobalt is Canadian Price that is pretty decent. I called about 20 petstores today to see what they had up in Toronto and I found quite a few Cobalts with a wide range of prices... at the one store I havent talked to yet on their website they have a 1/2" sling for $34.95 but im not sure if they still have one, there was a store in Windsor selling one for $199 with tank setup (lol) lets just say I dont think I would pay that much considering I can buy a 10 gallon tank for about $11. Another store had one for $60 WC 5" with tank for $60 and sonther for $115 and so on. Up here the price is kinda all over the place for this T.

Ok, what's the point of your respond? So, you paid $40 for your juvie lividum and $40 for juvie t. blondi. Am I right that the reasoning is that $40blondi(juvie) + $40lividum(juvie) = $80lividum(unknown--probably adult).

Definately my big G. pulchra female - $125 for her. Next would also have to be a G. pulchra. A 3-inch one for $75, which turned out to be a male.
At least I have a potential breeding pair.

Oh, no! I would never buy a cobalt for $80! I saw one for sale in a pet shop, and they wanted 80 for it. I also saw a curly hair for 5:) But, I didnt have any money on me. So when I get paid ill go back.

The highest price I paid for one of my spideys was 30 euro for a subadult B. boehmei.

But 20 euro for 3/4 inch A. brocklehursti was a lot of money too, for such a little one! :)

Well maybe this is foolishly logical, but I'm guessing the most he's ever spent on one invert is $40.
The original post did ask "what's the most you've ever spent on one invert"......

Themost I've spent on one tarantula is £20 (around $35 I think) for a 2.5" Chilobrachys fimbriatus.
