Yes I did need you to spell it out for me I usually like to read comments that are specifically written. Thanks for clarifying.Read much, Jose? I don't think I need to explain this. Since you are having a rough morning, I will spell it out for you.
I never, nor did gottarantulas, say that he was importing illegaly. He thought he could buy from the Spider Shop, which is a well known retailer out of the UK. He compared the shipping costs of buying from the UK and Canada to Joe Rossi's high pricing. Joe and the OP are in the same state so he wouldn't have to pay shipping. I don't think he realized US prices are so much higher than other countries because of our import laws.
WELL, BLOW ME DOWN!Most (if not all) OW baboons have them and all arboreals have them as well.
Yes, I'm afraid that's exactly what I was referring to. Scopulae.. I'm inferring that they're NOT iridescent in low/ambient lighting, perhaps black.So you believe she is talking about the reflective scopulae (foot pads) from bright light or camera flash?
And look up how much is the import/ export license is and add that to your minimum purchase. If it were worth it most U.S. hobbyists would have all the rares for a fraction of the cost.Importing from Canada is a $1000 plus the requirement of an import/export license, plus liable to host of other fees. Importing from the U.K. is a whole lot easier.... $200 to $400 minimum purchase, depending on the retailer and the requirement of an import/export license. I did my research and have already applied for an import/export license.
All the specifics were there for the taking. All you had to do was read what I quoted. It even named the poster. Your comments were like a child who wonders into the middle of a movie and wants to know what's going on.Yes I did need you to spell it out for me I usually like to read comments that are specifically written.

Are you having a bad morning? You want a lollipop with your comment?All the specifics were there for the taking. All you had to do was read what I quoted. It even named the poster. Your comments were like a child who wonders into the middle of a movie and wants to know what's going on.
By what gottarantulas said about comparing the shipping costs from the UK to a local higher price implies he doesn't have a permit....and what do you know, he doesn't have a permit. He said he would have bought it if they weren't sold out. Sorry sir but asking questions that are easily answered by reading, I consider that idiotic or just plain lazy. I couldn't make myself any clearer in my post and in my follow up answer I gave you.My point was there was no reason for you to bring up illegal importation.
He's on a roll of being idiotic. He was already assuming that he was going to purchase the spider illegally without just asking a simple question to gottatarantulas if he had an import license.
That's why CEC said please don't import without a permit, it's a felony. Know your laws before you go buying outside of the US.
We don't know how he was going to purchase the spider therefore why bring up the illegal importation of animals? And it is why I asked a rational question and received an idiotic response.
Save for genus Theraphosa seems. Damn, here (and in UK) are priced even as slings, in USA there's people that bought 0.1 for less than $60.I don't think he realized US prices are so much higher than other countries because of our import laws.
I didn't have to ask, his comments wouldn't make any sense if he had a permit.Plain lazy on your part just simply asking him directly how he was going to purchase a spider from the UK, instead you assumed he was going to import illegally. Besides is it really your business or mine how he gets his spiders? I asked a questions that I needed clarification and you responded with a stupid remark.
In the end who cares how he gets his spiders or wether you're right or if I'm right.
Oh yeah I saw that post, but that's a really really cheap price for a stirmi, especially if I remember correctly the $15 slings (@EulersK ). Most stirmi slings cost more than $60 here too.I don't know but definitely not here (in Italy/UK, I mean) :-/
If I'm not wrong once EulersK said that he payed his female $60, maybe less. Here a sling would cost more lol
Not T.blondi, of course.
