Just under 2 weeks after getting my G. pulchra from invertepet, I went to the show in McDonough, GA. The selection was somewhat disappointing. The majority of Ts for sale were rosies and avic avics. I have no problems w/ these species, but they just weren't what I wanted just yet. There weren't as many Brachys and Aphnopelmas as I had hoped. There was a nice 2" B. smithi, but I didn't have $40. So, I came home with a 4-4.5" female Brachypelma albopilosum for $15. She's very cool, and really dwarfs my G. pulchra by comparison. I didn't expect to come home w/ anything this big, so I need a bigger Kritter Keeper for her. The guy I got her from was real cool, and answered a lot of questions for me. I came very close to buying a desert hairy scorplet for $3 that was 3/4" from nose to base of tail. What is that part called again, the mesasoma? I now wish I had bought the scorplet also. Did anybody attend this show?
