    i dont buy dirrectly from him, i bought em from a reptile store and the employee told me it was from a guy named wayne, they had about 10 payson blondes all the same size so i know they musta been captive bred.

    Doubtful on that account, it is very easy to collect from an area and get spiders all about the same size. Also if they were captive born it would be years till they were adults. Most folks are after the easy money and do not want to waste time raising aphonopelma up to any real size.
    Those spiders were most assuradly wild cought

    if they came from wayne, they were wild caught along with MANY MANY more. the pet store probably only wanted so many, so wayne moves on to the next store. i was good friends with wayne, so i know first hand how he operates.
