I believe Kelly Swift has both WC adults and CB babies. The adults will generally run you twice or sometimes three times as much as a Cobalt Blue depending on the seller.

And being captive bred or wild caught is also a determining factor in the price.

I purchased an adult from Brandon of Reptist and boy, has she turned into a beast with a nearly foot long burrow.

Selenocosmia hainana?

I think they are just referred to as Haplopelma hainana by the general public.

i bought mine at a reptile show about a year ago from a place called G&G Rodent Farm...i paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $65 for her...money well spent too! right now she's my favorite spider...she stays in her burrow all day but comes out and walks circles around her enclosure hunting at night...and she eats A LOT:) ...she molted the day after i got her (not sure why i have this curse but all my spiders molt the day after i buy them) and now she's a huge 7" monster that doesn't hesitate to throw an impressive threat display...

i'm not sure if G&G has a website but it should be easy enough to google and find out:)

hope this helps

Harvey
