    Me too, send me the $ for shipping soon and I will send some, I know where a few live in my house. Anybody here on this site that is willing to get bitten, well, .....I will say this, that I will trust the results of *that* over any stories I've read so far. Man, there just seems to be a war some are fighting using info that isn't true out there! It's crazy to me! OK, OK, I'm calming down, I'm mostly referring to my political views. It's just that I feel people are being sold-out with marketing, instead of reality when it comes to politics, ...OK, OK, lol, not going there...:razz:

    Good stuff ...lost in the page turn-over...missed the post myself..others probably too.









    what did u prove again? ...oh nevermind. Scathing stuff. :clap:




    edit:if you want to handle your L. intermedia or gaucho I would LOVE to handle my intermedias and gauchos! Dont have any though. Hard to get via legit sources. Know how I can get some? Anyway.. I THINK the spider in question is L.laeta, but im a clown..could be wrong.








    edit: whao! which they are NOT on, mine is documented, yours a fable of your own imagining
    what? I have these spiders right in front of me. For a scientist type u sure dont know jacksquat how to achieve the upper hand in a debate. Your WAY more knowledgeable than me..yet.. you now bore me.
    What, u think there was a job opening at AB for the position of bullshat stats reminder? Who cares.
    silly.

    I might have to take you guys up on that offer once I get back from the Midfail...err, Midwest. ;)

    That sounds awesome. I should still have a week or so before my next semester starts after getting back on the 17th...Soo couple days to recoup from the trip and I am up for it whenever. :D

    Definitely want to setup a sheet and a light out there at some point. Loads of crazy stuff to collect(though, not more than 1-2 individuals), photo, and pin!(On top of the stuff I have from this trip.)

    Ive been 'up for whatever ' for years now ...cant recall last time i wasnt up for whatever. ya know...whatever is just damn hard to achieve ...why is that? Seattle boyz/grls figured that out.
    What, whatever.. yeah, man, we gotta go ///shoot some rockets at the dry lake bed.. look for scorps/spids and check out the local desertrat fem population. Local bar has live music last time i was there...surf..pretty decent too. I smuggled a huge cuctus that night ...got a flat tire... God waz on that cactus's side that night. But.. the cougar that stocked me turned out to be ok .., batteries burned out ..yet collected some loxos. scray wash @ night. creepy esp w/o a spare. Venom, u should come out this way and hang..

    sissy! :( :razz: Actually, I meant the poster who was handling them, when I went back and looked I realized you were the one that had them in a cup with a lid. Oops. Either way, no thanks - and do you think they are in Phoenix? Acid spit.....

    Orchid, thanks.......I will sleep much better tonight.

    L. deserta and maybe another equally non-dangerous species can be found in and around Phx.

    Arizona is the "desert recluse" state! 5 species known to be native. Looking at a couple range maps...Phoenix is on the eastern edge of L.arizonica's range. Most likely L.deserta could/should be found there also, but its a bit past their range. Below u in the Tucson area there are L.sabina and L.apachea.

    Interesting, can you give me links to the maps you are referencing? I would love to look at them! I don't believe I have ever seen one, but then again, I see spiders all the time and have never paid attention to what they are other than black widows.
     
  17. buthus

    buthus Arachnoprince Old Timer

    most of the rangemaps found online are about the same ...bugguides map is the one i have a link to ...its missing a few species though ...but covers the main natives.

    Thanks for the links - I see Phoenix is on the outskirts.
