Hi fellow hobbyists!

Is there any spider that you are dying to get, but it's nowhere to be found? Or the price tag makes you cry? Let's hear everybody's voice!

Speaking for myself, I can't wait to see Iridopelma seladonium enter the hobby.

So far.. Its the P. victorii that is not IDed yet..
Plus there is the Psalmopoeus maya that I would like to get..
Then.. There is another Psalmopoeus that starts with l... But I can for the life of me remember how to spell it..

P. langenbucheri ;P I cheated, I looked it up {D Although I believe we had figured out it's in the hobby, just not in the US?

Although I agree that I really want it.

Thats what it is.. The P. maya & P. langenbucheri are both in the hobby.. As you said.. Not in the US hobby..

But the P. victorii is not even IDed yet.. (So I have been told..) Since it seems to be like its going to be a Psalmo.. I want it! No matter what they name it.. {D

The P. Smithi on your website :p. Just $245 and 1 parent convincing away from getting it. Lol.

I'm pretty simple, though. DYING to get Avicularia Purpurea or Pulchra, but I can't find them anywhere.

LOL! Just bring your parents over and we'll both show them that P. smithi is not as black as it's painted ;)

Pulchra you can get from Paul Becker at petcenterusa.net. He has a very reasonable price on them, in my opinion, way below market. Plus he's in LA, so you don't have to pay for shipping.
A. purpurea - try contacting JDeRosa, he had some for sale recently.

I so second that idea!! I offered to go, trench coat, cargo pants and pillow cases to bring some home about a year ago in another thread(for any authorities reading, I'M JUST KIDDING!! maybe :)

But I would spend good money on this T. I don't need to eat. My kids don't need clothes or a roof over their heads. That's over rated anyway. :)

X. immanis, M. robustum, a big fat female GBB or G. pulchra. I've found them, just can't justify the expense. That whole silly paying the mortgage nonsense just gets in the way.

Get the Poecilotheria smithi, and get them from Vitaliy. I just got 3 from him and the $245 each is totally worth it. These guys are outstanding. I am super pleased. There are so many T's I want but its not the money thats the problem. Its the wife and the space, lol.
