    hi Steven,
    I´m still waiting for s.o. to confirm the ID but it really seems to be H. maxima.
    To be honest: I think the ppl who got them won´t manage to breed them. If they manage to get eggsacs (which wouldn´t be captive breeding in my eyes - just luck to get a sac from a WC), they´ll probably not manage to raise enough specimen in order to breed F2, but rather sell F1 in order to make big money...

    Hi Steven,

    so, why don´t YOU post some....?

    I have some pictures here and might get permission to post - anyway, i won´t even inquire for permission, as i don´t want to see these posted.
    It was for GOOD REASON that this wasn´t mentioned.

    I´m out of this topic.
    (If you are interested in "good advise" and if you have SERIOUS INTEREST in Sparassidae in general: DROP THIS!
    If you "need to know" you might get informed replies, however of course NOT through public boards and this is NOT an offer to have a private chat)

    @ Bastian

    I fully second your opinion on that one, as do "some others" (guess you know who those are anyway...)

    Greetings,

    Stefan

    hey Bastian,
    i was under the same impression when someone passed me trough some prices he had been send.

    i don't have them, and don't have plans in getting some,
    i was just interested in seeing other/new picture-material of them, rather then the pictures and video's i allready have seen.

    Here is an edited version of Stefan's image; reduced exposure and cropped (posted with Stefan's permission).
    Hopefully the coloration is accurate.
    Let me know, Stefan.

    That is a great looking species!

    Hi all,

    just to make this "official": Jeff had asked for permission in advance and was granted to edit and post. ;)


    Hi Jeff,

    slowly getting there, a bit too bright in my very own one, but now a tad too dark in yours. Maybe something in between, like 50% darker than my original, but 50% brighter than the version you´ve posted.

    It definitely is!

    I really hope breeding of these will be possible and successfull one day.

    Regards,

    Stefan

    Hi Jeff,

    and a better result!

    The problem to get a 100% match i guess is about the different colour shades this species portrays: if you get one done with editing the pic you´re next to automatically editing the others, too.

    This spiders definitely have some cryptic colour and markings...

    Regards,

    Stefan

    Man those are really nice looking colorful spiders! Here are a couple of not so colorful ones I came across while walking around, Olios gigantea. I found 3 females clumped together, gave one away. The other two clumped together in the gallon jar. Guess they like neighbors. Going to let the babies go when they hatch.
