Jacen Beers,

How come they're impossible to get in Canada. I thought Jeremy Huff, of Canada, bred these this year. Or perhaps had a bunch.

stuff is always impossible to get in Canada

Even if you can find the spider, some dealers refused to sell, I tried to buy large Stripe Knee from a Petland store in the south of Calgary, and they would not sell to me, untill i got parental or landlord approval, I told them to forget it.

As for most places, selection is really limited up hear from what ive seen. and anything out of the ordinary is really expensive. Ive found rosies hard to find. at least around Calgary

I'm not a believer...

There seems to be two species of Ephebopus "blue fangs" floating around the US.
The very first US spiderlings of this blue fanged genus, to arrive on the market, had pinkish to a metallic green cephalothorax. Later, a bunch came in and spiderlings had very black cephalothorax. This leads me to believe there are two species, or perhaps subspecies. Is one Ephebopus cyanognathus, and one really E. uatuman?
This is perplexing and nobody is really picking up on this. Here is a pic of a spiderling about 3/4", with a non black prosoma. Use Scott's fine pics to see the black ceph version.
Anybody have any ideas? Breeding of this species should probably be put on hold, at least here in the US. The one pictured turned out to be a female, and was later sold to a fellow in CA.

The PEtland here is great. I I got a P Murinus (skeleton tarantula) there a long time ago, they always have tons of Rosies and Stripe Knees and I got two of my pinktoes from there. THey are really good.

Hmmmmm..... Interesting, I never heard that there were two types going around.... Another possibility might be sexual dimorphism. Mine is around the 3/4 mark in that picture as well so if it is an artifact of dimorphism, that's probably the youngest that I've heard it being noticeable in a T.
