I’m looking at going to a reptile and bug expo either repti-con or Reptilian Nation Expo (both happening in my state within the month) I was wondering which one is bigger/better
Four or five T dealers there.It was obviously more centered around herps,but thats not unusual.I went looking for specific T,s.But,i had never seen so many P.metallica/striata slings Several had good sized Theraphosa blondi and apophysis,but i was not intrested in those.How was the attendance? As far as T offerings, were there not a lot of T Dealers?
confirmed females are going for big bank these days. A dealer tried to buy my daughter's for his breeding project. Offered her $600 so yes quite pricey. Slings are going for $80-90Four or five T dealers there.It was obviously more centered around herps,but thats not unusual.I went looking for specific T,s.But,i had never seen so many P.metallica/striata slings Several had good sized Theraphosa blondi and apophysis,but i was not intrested in those.
Several Grammastola pulchra,and a nice female that was 4-5in DLS,but real pricy. That and you had to take being female on their word.
Most T sellers were from out of state,Utah/Idaho.And i think one from California i think.Good deals on feeders and enclosures.
I went to that expo looking for a GBB ended up with a feathered leg baboon (I don’t remember the sientific name) and an avicularia avicularia for $45.Actually ended up worth the trip.Very nice expo( Reptilian Nation).Got a cheap hornworm culture less than half the price at my local feeder store.
I was not impressed with the T offerings,but on my way out,looked into a case of slings in vials,and WOW!,got a P. subfusca lowland juvie.
Made it worth the trip,for sure.
good ole stromatoxinStromatopelma calceatum is the Feather Leg.Ya,saw a bunch of those,along with Heterscodra maculatas up for sale.Obviously someone had a bunch of sacs of these two species.
But,thats a big leap going from a GBB,to a Feather-Leg.Good luck with both of your T,s.
