Thanks for posting that pic, Tony! Do you know for sure it's Henrik's? Great angle - the tarsi look like little black socks. ;) That's it - no longer Salem Spotted Ornamental, it's Black Socked Ornamental ! :D

Anyway, they should be arriving any day now.

155 $ ?!?! Go here >>click me<< there they where offered for about half that price:

--8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<-

Poecilotheria Miranda for sale
I still have a few Miranda Spiderlings left...
1 for 90 Euro
10 for 800 Euro

--8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<---8<-

BTW, 1 EUR is about 1 $.

I agree, it's expensive - but Henrik, who is the sole supplier of these spiders, is selling these spiders in EUROPE at a price that's about what (speaking for myself) I am getting them for wholesale.

P. subfusca is still an $80-90 spider as spiderlings. The USA prices for inverts are higher than Europe because we have VERY strict import regulations (we don't get those rare unique specimens occasionally 'appearing' from India and other closed countries) and people are generally willing to pay more.

As has been said ad nauseum, if they're too expensive for anyone, they can wait a few years until (maybe) they're bred more. We U.S. dealers aren't price-gouging. We're paying top dollar, ourselves. If we didn't make any markup on them, it wouldn't be worth the trouble of importing them at all.

So basically, we can have them here for at high prices (thanks to the high pricing set at the source) or we can not have them at all. *shrug* It's a catch-22.

Hey all,

This picture was recently posted by John Hoke, but I had to move the post to the classifieds forum. Here is the pic back where it should be though :)

Thanks for the Great Pic John!!!

Gotta wonder if that is Vitalius Wacketi or P. 'playtomma'.

Pampho-classification is in a mess. Was our pattern-recognition ever meant to go so far?
