<besides, P. metallica are the nicest T there has been, even if they only keep that color for a short period.>
So, they are blue only as juveniles? Are there any color differences between males and females? What do they look like as adults?
This is what seems to be said about them, although I can't say for sure. Either way they are beautiful T's and for sure they will keep a lot of the blue. Nicer shape too I think(thicker legs then average from what I've seen, have a look a the photo on Guy Tansley's site, mmmmm, nice!http://www.giantspiders.com/ in the gallery). Who knows, the males could be a drab brown/grey, like most pokes. This is why buying early will be a gamble, although I have to say, if I was able to buy some I'd take the gamble without even thinking twice. It's a shame that India aren't planning to export captive bred spiders so that P.metallica would survive in the hobby.
