Anyone else have one of these? I know MrD has/had one. Just trying to develop a "Blue-fang network" for future breeding projects.

The reason behind the name. Kind of hard to see in the picture, but the colors are truly amazing.

One of my absolute favourites.
Have they made their way to Europe yet? I've not seen them for sale myself.

I know about a dutch guy breeding this species. He had an eggsac a few months ago, and only 8 lil ones survived. He already has a new eggsac atm, and I might be buying some from him ... 2, or 3, or maybe even 4 or 5 :).

Although I no longer keep any Ephebopus sp. in my collection, here's a pic of one I had a couple years back. This immature was from the 1st batch that hit the US hobby. This particular specimen went on to be a female. As an adult the electric blue chelicera "dulled?" to a nice metallica deep purple.

Heh.. Yeah a good lookin spider there too.. (I have a 3/4" GBB sling)

I was just curious, because those little yellow bands on legs 1,2,7&8 are just soo cool. Especialy with the other colors all over the spider. Might be another species to add to my most wanted list.

you know what? i just love the docile/calm Ts...there are so many of them and so many are just gorgeous!

i got a Mexican Red Knee, a freebie Chaco Golden Knee, and a PZB.

i hope to get a Rio Grande Gold, an Antilles Pink (my ultimate!), a GBB, and perhaps a Mexican Bloodleg. on those latters though the most disappointing thing is as they get older that beautiful red on the legs goes away. :/

still though, they are amazing. :) i might just have to swallow that tiny complaint and get one of those too. can't wait for the next reptile show!!! =D

From what I've read, they they don't threaten to bite as much as E.murinus, but they are psycho fast and really nervous. However, they are by no means docile.

BTW, does anyone have a pic of an adult?

Not a very large species IIRC, around 4.5"

I'm sure someone will be along to confirm or correct me :)
