There are a couple vendors on here with them for sale, yes they are for real. I think Joe Rossi is one that comes to mind.

For that price, I'd expect the T to buy me a nice house and toss burgers at me with some tongs while chatting to it's sackmates how cool i was :)

You can buy those slings for £34 less from someone else. I wouldn't call £84 expensive, though.

Well if you think these are expensive look at Pamphobeteus sp. solaris prices

Saw them first in Poland. They are rare and therefor the price. If you buy them somewhere else you will get them around 60€ from what I have seen.

When P. metallica was hatched out in the USA, they were $400/sling. This Chilobrachy has nothing on them. ;)

Yup, just gotta play the waiting game for cases like these :) I'm patiently awaiting on the Harpactira pulchripes and Thrigmopoeus psychedelicus to drop in price, myself. Just can't justify spending like 2 months worth of groceries on a spider no matter how pretty they are

Hmmm that's tempting, thanks for pointing that out. I might wait around some more and see if they ever get down into $60-ish territory

It seems so reasonable until you put it that way! :)

Price of a 2FH sling dropped from around €150 to around €65 over here. Apparently this species isn't hard to breed, i see more and more breeders getting these in stock. I imagine the price will drop soon in the US as well. :)
