    Just wondering what everyone think would be a fair price for the T. I bought it this pass winter as a sling for $60.



    Thanks in advance.

    I'd say you got ripped off for the sling. They go for around $30-$40.

    As for this one, I'd estimate about $80-$90. For $150-$200 we're talking mature 5"+ females.

    how big was it when you got it???? usually unsexed ones go for around 70-100 @ 3" or above
     
  7. Sling to that big in less then a year........ am I the only one thinking male?

    I'd say between $80-100.

    What size was it when you bought it?? You say you bought it as a sling(which in my head is 1" or smaller) this past winer and it's already grown that big? :eek: I don't believe it...:wall:


    Nope Ryan, I'm definately thinking male and steroids..

    Are you sure it was a sling when you got it? It hasn't even been a year yet and it's grown this big. Got a picture of its underside? That's damn fast even for a male.

    Yes it was around 1" give or take. When I bought it and during that time no one else was selling any young specimens besides close to mature or mature specimens which was way way to much for someone like me that just got into hobby so I believe $60 was a fair price. Were anyone of you trying to obtain any of these last year? Maybe the prices has changed a little since I have started seeing more people selling them this year.

    I'll try my best at getting a underside shot. How should I go about holding it for that type of shot? I only had it crawl onto my hand before, never grabbed a T before.


    Dug up a few old pics.



    Here's a pic from 3-26-07

    Mature females have actually been going for between $200-250.
     
  12. Just coax it onto the side of the glass and take a picture of the underside that way. That might be easier then grabbing it and trying to take a picture at the same time because that can get tricky. Or put it in a clear container and take a picture from below.

    Not sure what part of the underside to focus on but hope this pic helps, it's the best I can do for now:(

  14. You need to have this area in focus. There seem to be a blur or something maybe the flash blocking the area we need to see. Now that I look at it more....... is that a scar? When you re take the picture try to make it so the T is up and down, abodmen at the bottom. That helps too.

    When i was new to this thang i didn't realize how small a 1" sling really was. I'm guessing this one was more like 2" but w/ a 1" body when the Eelnoob acquired it. Either way, it's a sweet looking bug now. Looks like some powerfeeding's been happenin too. If he/she/it was mine i'd throw on the brakes a bit and let it slim and shapen.

    Good luck finding a buyer. If it's female she should get you a nice lil pocketfull of walkin' around money! Too bad i just spent $200 at MARS just 2 weeks ago. That was my quarterly allowance for inverts.

    Try to take your pics at an angle to the glass/plastic. The flash glare is going to be the worst when taking the pic head on.

  19. Amazingly enough none of those pictures screams male to me except for the last picture and the first three pics almost look female, but I still think you might still have a small juvie male. With this one I think you are going to have to wait another molt or just trade or sell as unsexed.

    Thanks


    Just curious what are we looking for anyways?



    Currently have it listed as unsex. Just asking on here cause don't really want to over charge for it.
