Ok, I'm a little CONFUSED now! :p

I've seen the common name as "Red Skeleton" and my 2 incher is red. I had been wondering why his/her front legs started to look blue though. I was thinking it might be my imagination, especially after seeing someone else's that was all red (orange). Why do they call it "red skeleton" if it's not really a red (or orange) spider? I went to look at Rick's site to compare notes and neither the male nor the female looks like a red skeleton to me. The male seems to have a little more red in the striping but other than that.......???

Great photo, Kelly. I'm glad to see you're still alive and kicking ;)

I figured it was something different because of tha wide green stripe on the abdomen. My critter doesn't have one of those though it's only about 2 inches if that. How big is yours? :)

ah, gotcha. The 'stripe' is just where the abdomen is catching the light, the whole thing is fairly green.
Right now, he/she is about 1.5" or so. Although they grow so fast, it may have molted again since I took that pic! :)

What is/are the common name(s) for this species? It almost looks like something I saw at one of the local pet stores, but of course, they don't use scientific names!!:?

How pricey are they?

Burgundy Skeleton is one common name I've seen. I'm pretty sure I also saw them liste as Red Skeletons somewhere.

I think Kelly used to have 1 inch slings for around $28. It's been awhile so my memory may be a little off. ;)

I bought mine from someone who was cutting down on critters so I don't think I paid much for it. In fact, I was thinking of parting with i while trying to cut down my collection. Now that I've seen Kelly's photo, I think I'll KEEP it! :)
