Yeah, I was browsing craiglists, and saw this, and I just couldn’t let it pass. I am picking them up coming weekend.

G. pulchra male - You will still have 5+ years to enjoy him.

Uhhhhhhhh...that is doubtful at best. Wishful thinking.

Mine went from a 1-inch sling to 4.75-inch MM in just over 3 years, and I didn't feed heavily or keep it in an extra warm place. If it's already an immature adult male, you might have another year with him before he hooks out, and then 12-18 months after that, unless you send him off for breeding (which wouldn't be a bad idea, considering how in-demand they are.)

Of course, if he's wrong and it's a female, that would be awesome for you.

Every one of those (except the metallica) is in either my
1. Top ten species I've had
Or
2. Top ten species I really want.

Now everyone is checking their local craigslists just to make sure there aren't any tarantula deals they are missing... :rofl:

Btw, I'm so jealous.

That is quite the deal. I'm surprised my area doesn't have more posts related to Ts on Craigslist myself

I saw that earlier but he didn't respond to me. I didn't want the whole lot, though--wanted to buy individually. Nice pickup!

Holy crap, nice find. As much as I despise CL I may have to start slumming around on there haha. Congrats!

Probably why he/she didn’t respond. Looks like they just want to get rid of all of them.

I think this is a time where the term ‘exponential growth’ can ligitimately be applied to your collection!
