I am really intrigued by these spiders and want to know where I can get one. If anyone knows or has some for sale send me a PM. Also what is the lifespan of these guys?

or better yet: "where to FIND Phidippus audax?" ahahaha {D well, if you can't find one, then i would suggest posting in the classifieds. there are probably TONS of people that either have them or can get them for you!!

oh yeah, question #2: prob anywhere around 1 year, maybe almost 2 if perfect conditions. maybe someone who has raised them from a sac could answer a little better than i can. alls i've had were WC.

just look around you anyplace, chances are any large jumpers you catch are going to be audax,regius,or rare(maybe not in ca) johnsonii. all make good captives and are easy to keep.

I did find some but I read that audax was one of the biggest and is really beautiful looking. The ones I found around my house are like a cm long.

Rydog, try talking to Shadowblade. I am fairly sure he came home with a few of those from ACon. While I think he is planning on breeding them, he may have some extra...

Spiderpharm.com has Phidippus johnsoni for a decent price. I got a male/female pair from them and ended up with spiderlings.

I'm going after spiders today and will let you know if I find audux. I've found two so far this year (one was engrossed in killing a honey bee).
