Found this ad on craigslist:


http://nashville.craigslist.org/pet/2008140590.html

Going to pick them up today. He dropped the price down to $150 for all of them and their setup, which is a premade split tank with three compartments. He said it's like ones you see at pet stores and he said he got all three of them from a reptile expo a few years back. He also said the LP and the A. seemani are confirmed females, but the P. cancerides was too small to sex when he got it. Can't wait to get them!!!

And is that an A. seemanni or A. sp. "Guatamala"?

This wasn't a homemade split tank so it's all good. Each compartment is separated with no gaps and have individual lids. The LP is huge at 7", almost bigger than my hand, and I'm already loving the A. seemani (~5") and P. cancerides. (~5.5 to 6") I got the spiders, the tank, four water dishes and four hides, and a heat strip that is the length of the tank, all for $150!!!! :D

Here are some pics of the spiders:






Enclosure:

Yes nice T's and find.. The true A. seemanni is truly a looker! :)

How big is the enclosure(s)? It looks nice and is quite large from what I gather from the pics.. Have size or did I miss that earlier in the post? (doh!)

I'll have to get the dimensions when I get home today.

So far the A. seemani is very calm, but a bit skittish. As for the other two, the LP attacks anything that goes in there like it's a cricket. The P. cancerides will throw up a threat when disturbed, then turn around and book it the other way, it's pretty fast, it actually ran out when I had it's cage open and I had to catch it and put it back in. Great spiders though.

Okay I got the measurements guys.

It's 4 feet across so each tank is a foot wide. It's 12.5 inches from front to back. And it's 7 inches tall.

Wow that is nice! Looks good too and wouldn't mind having those in a racking system honestly..

Someone said they are display correct? Anyone who might know if are available? Sorry to Hijack a bit.

Thanks Chris..

Oh and to your question about a A. seemanni or sp Guatemala I would say true A. seemanni by the 1/2 stripe mid tarsi whereas the Guatemala has a cross band on the same tarsi.

Okay I haven't wrote dimensions in a while so I can't remember how to write them. It's LxWxH correct? So is the size across (4 ft.) the width? Or the length?
