    Well, I asked around over here and even Michael Scheller said they seem to be close to extinct in the hobby over here (at least he wasn't aware of anyone that keeps a breeding pair) - which is quite sad. I'm gonna try ask around some more and see what I can dig up, but after that answer I don't have much hopes. A pity, but that's what happens if people not willing to breed them just want them for keeping them :(

    What a shame. They're such nice-looking tarantulas.

    Considering hundreds of CB slings were imported into the US last year from Europe, I highly doubt that. ;)

    From EUROPE maybe, but certainly not from Germany, which I was talking about. It could very well be that there are some in other EU countries, but at least over here, they're close to extinction in the hobby.

    Huh, I thought Germany was in Europe. I can't believe I passed German, let alone German 2 in high school. Man our schools are getting terrible. {D

    Pff..stop picking my answer to pieces there ;) You know what I meant (and I'm sorry if I wrote it weird to get it across - happens to foreigners;)) - however: There's a number of very well-known sites over here where people post offerings for upcoming T expos and the like (just have to mention "HAMM" - the biggest one in Germany...) but even on those, there's nothing despite the fact that people from Italy, Spain, UK, Finland, Sweden, Hungary and so on usually travel there once per year. So, where did those come from exactly, Chad?

    I need NAMES, ADDRESSES, TELEPHONENUMBERS! :D (just kidding...)

    The greatest thing to have in the tarantula hobby is patience.

    I had seen this species come and go several times while I was in the hobby. It will come around again.

    AgentD006las Arach-how about..NO

    I stumbled across this thread and i feel i should add my input. I raised 3 slings from 2i. 1 male and 2 females. The male died at 3" and the 2 females reached 4" in the first year. I fed them quite well. They passed my 2 female A. versicolors that were 1.5" at the time i had bought the A. juruensis.

    Thank you Aarantula, I appreciate it! :D

    I have a D7000 and use a 100mm Tokina macro. These are full-res crops from a complete body shot.
