I picked up a juvenile P. cancerides, a juvenile P. murinus, and two B. emilia slings at the exotics expo today. Also bought my first scorpion after a long hiatus from them, a subadult H. arizonensis :D

Unfortunately, people mostly had adults and subadults, so there just wasn't much that I could afford this trip, but it was fun to get out and look.

Galeogirl,

I'm jealous. We have no such thing in this area. The closest we have is an anual reptile expo and no inverts are allowed.:( I wish you well with your new slings and things.

Thanks! I'm pretty pleased with the quality of the animals I found at the two tables that were carrying inverts.

Shows only happen twice a year around here, I have to travel three or more hours to Seattle to go to the larger expos. I wish they were more frequent. The local shows are mostly reptiles and birds but there are a few inverts, even if the selection isn't huge.

Who knows? Maybe someday I'll have my own little table at the expos again.

It's about an inch long and velvety blue-black. Very pretty little sling. Looks kind of leggy. Major attitude and really fast. Wish I'd had enough $$$ to pick up a few more.

Those things are vicious as they mature. I have a 5" female P.atrichrome, which is debated as being just a colormorph as cancerides. Shes as quick to bite the hell out of my pincers and attack her water than any of my spiders have been to date...except the nigricolor...

Reminds me of my juve Goliath birdeater. he's like Scrappy Doo, really small but always trying to fight.

Botar - that's a GREAT NAME IDEA!!! A store devoted to inverts called Slings n' Things!!! Too cool. Now, to win the lottery and open said store :D

Good luck with your new babies galeogirl :)

Holley,

Did you buy that gorgeous G. pulchra from Alex? He told me it was on hold for someone when I was at his table. It's a good thing I spent all of my money yesterday, I would have been tempted to go back today if I had more. :)
