    the funny thing is i most likely gotten way better deals than you ever had, such as E murinus females for $18, female stoutleg baboon for $10, etc i have my sources (and thats with no shipping)
     
  3. I hit a nerve didn't I? It's o.k. your young and will realize the error of your ways eventually. No. I don't know how old you are, but considering your retort to my previous reply is ;P;P;P I get better deals than you do.;P I feel I'm pretty accurate on my assessment of you. If I'm wrong I'll be the first to admit it. I was simply trying to express to you that your assumptions might be well off base. I am not here to berate people that are as excited about this hobby as I am. I will however point out someone who is making statements and suggesting that the majority of people on these boards are here to rip you off and take your money. There are bad apples. No doubt, but they are few and far between. There is a review section and an inquiry section to help deal with situations like these. If you use them like I and many others have you won't have a problem. If you do there are ways to resolve the situation like using paypal and if a problem arises you use them to get your money back. It might be a slight hassle, but if you take care of yourself it won't result in a loss on your part. Only a loss on the sellers reputation.

    I wish there was a like button for this comment lol.

    Indeed. I've spent more at the strip club with my x wife than I EVER have or ever will on any spider.

    It kind of makes you think.

    Everyone has their own priorities. I will never pay more than a few grand for a vehicle, and some people have vehicles that are worth over 40k... so to each his own.

    Honestly though if you compare the reptile hobby and prices for some individuals its not exactly that outrageous that an adult female pmetallica is 400-500 when you have people dumping 2k-3k on certain snakes etc. It's all relative anyway, i used to be in the biking hobby and a decent bike would run 2-4k, with other gear easily running into 200-300 per piece. All relative.

    thanks for all the replies and i think i am going to take my chances with one or two spiderlings instead of a sexed female.

    Both the spidershop and spireworldeu have slings £20-25, buy 4-5 and wait imo

    Oh yeah Hobby's can get expensive. I'm a blacksmith and anvils can run 8 or 9 dollars a pound. A good blower is around 250 with a leg vise being 250 if your lucky. It's all about how much you love it : ) I paid 150 for my female stirmi, my uncle said he wouldn't give 5$ for it : D
