A breeding program is a great idea. I suggest starting off with a google doc of Pokie inventory in the US, for those who are interested in a breeding program. It should have the following minimum entry: timestamp, name and or username, species, amount, age of each female and male... etc. Perhaps there already is oneWe should set up a breeding program, where hobbyists trade their mature animals to ensure that they're still being bred in captivity.
Thanks for the infoAccording to this https://tomsbigspiders.com/2018/08/10/the-u-s-fish-and-wildlife-service-ruling-on-sri-lankan-poecilotheria-species/
it is still legal to ship Sri Lankan Poecilotheria across state lines as long as no money is exchanging hands.
We should set up a breeding program, where hobbyists trade their mature animals to ensure that they're still being bred in captivity. The interstate commerce ban means that the future of these species in the hobby is at risk. It would be really unfortunate to see them disappear, but if hobbyists are willing to trade their animals to ensure they're bred, and are even willing to give away slings to ensure they're being kept by qualified keepers, I think we can make it work.
I'd volunteer to help start such a group, but I'm just now getting back into the hobby and don't even have any Poecilotheria in my collection yet.
