Yes, the title says it all. I've been looking for L. Parahybana slings all over my city. Can't find any. :wall:

How much do they cost though? I wanna start taking care of them as slings and watch them grow to big-ass adults. Maybe you guys can recommend where I can get these?

Thanks in advance!

I'm ordering from Ken as soon as I get my paypal set up... definitely not a bad deal.

There are a number of sources, and Ken is a good one. You should be able to get a sling at a reasonable price from him or another reputable dealer or hobbyist and grow it up. I have L. itabunae, a different species. Nice spider - out a lot, pretty mellow, good looking. I assume it is very similar to L parahybana.

If you live in the Phillipines then ordering an L. parahybana from the states will probably cost a lot...

Kevin, I'd keep on looking in your home country. SOMEbody's GOT to be breeding them there......somewhere. I've never had a Lp yet but they appear every bit as awesome as my L. klugi. They are a notably prolific species with often a thousand+ per sac - so if you can find a local breeder, chances are they'll only charge you a few dollars apiece.... if not outright GIVE you ten or a hundred slings. Good luck with it! :) Terry

Yea,look around...Since they have thousands of eggs,try not to pay more than $5 each.

If you lived in the states you could probably get one for free (excluding shipping).

I agree don't give up in your search.... they are a great species to keep in my opinion.

Really don't mean to rub it in, but I bought 5 x L.Parahybana slings two weeks ago for R25.00 each here in South Africa, that's like $3.00 each but they are still tiny at about 1/4 inch.

Bought two LP slings for $10 total a couple weeks back from Swift's Inverts... their about 3/4" inch apiece. Add in your 3/4" inch B. Vegan and BAM!! instant freebie Oklahoma Brown LOL

They're so easy to come by, and very inexpensive over here in North America. Maybe you'll find an online dealer over in your area. The price really shouldn't be that high as I've heard, *no personal experience* that they're fairly easy to breed and give huge amounts of babies in the sacs.

lp slings

They shouldn't run that much. In the US, they are cheap. Sure, we a lot closer to Brazil than the Phillipines, but I also agree, someone over there has to be breeding them.
