    Incredible spiders, the only real drawback would be the life span.. 1 year + if I am correct, 2-3 in unusual cases.

    Hi I wonder if anyone can tell me how I can aquire any of the Hyllus species Diadi or Giganteus Ive searched for months and Im begining to think they dont exist.Best regards to every one Supaken.
  10. They exist....ill try to find the kink to one I had seen a couple months ago.
  11. I think is the site:
    that site had hyllus diardi before.
    But you must keep colonies of these and breed them because they have very short lifespans.

    You can find many salticidae here http://www.johnkoerner.org/ExoticOddities/jumping.html tho there is a $100 minimum order I believe. Most are $10-20 so you need to order a bunch.
    I actually have a 1" DLS MF p. audax which just birthed over 100 babies. She is an absolute badass. She takes on grasshoppers over twice her size. And she can jump clear across her Large KK to get it. About 8-9"
