I thought T's were awesome, these are way more awesome.
Too bad they aren't available in the states..

I'm going to revive this thread in the hopes of getting an ID on this one.

I unfortunately cannot help with the ID on your hunstman, Snark, but I just wanted to say thanks for bumping this thread. Some amazing pictures on here that I probably would not have seen otherwise.

Snark, that is beautiful! It's almost like a little tiger face on its abdomen in the orientation of the first photo. I'll have to try to get some shots of my H. venatoria to post up. I haven't mustered up the stones to open her cage yet out of fear of her disappearing only to reappear being eaten by one of my cats.

Yups. Cats and spiders don't mix.

I wish this thread was pinned, along with a few others.

This would be a great pinned post, since it seems like there's a fairly high level of interest here

I'm curious to know what's for sale in the states too. I've seen Heteropoda venatoria, occasional Olios giganteus, Holconia insignis and Heteropoda lunula for sale, but besides that, what else is around?

This awesome thread is back from the dead! Please sticky!

Except for the fact that Photobucket and TinyPic seem to have almost singlehandedly ruined nearly every photo in this thread.

Thanks,

Arthroverts
