too bad, Lynn!:(

Andy, good news, i am going to bring my male aberrans for you. hoping to get him to mate with my female first, but if not maybe you can get him to mate with your two girls, and then i'll try again after!
you may want to start cooling the females if you haven't already...Lee tells me they are montane and he's found them still active under snow, so they can handle alot of cooling.

EEeeek help!!!!

Is there anyone from the west yorkshire area going to the show. we were getting a lift with claire but fixing her car has eaten up all her funds!
(really sorry to hear your car took so much fixing claire.. bummer!)

or if anyone travelling south would be prepared to make a slight detour please pm either myself or matthew baines. obviously we would help out with petrol money.

:D I am so glad to see that so many of you are going, i haven,t been in the forums for a while but really looking forwards to Kettering it is such a nice venue, I hope those of you i have not met will say hello as there seems to be so many new names in here now, I have a 1 inch Red phase G,Rosea also a3/4 inch Vagans if any one would like them free of charge as they are a couple I have brought on from slings and have more than i need, they are both feeding really well and having no trouble moulting, just email me or pm me if anyone is interested and i will bring them along.
Well i had better get on now and get some tanks ready for whatever i bring back !!!!!!! Roll on the 19th.

I personally cant wait for the show, being my first fair and all. It is on the 19th right? as i have seen somewhere it was on the 20th.

Anyhow does anyone on the forum want a Exo terra Flexarium 38 and flextray? These both together would be worth about 45+ in shops and both have never been used. Flextray still in original packaging.

PM me if your interested and we can talk prices etc.

Did anyone go to Kettering? Its been a while since I went. How was it? Did you buy anything.

mary walters
27-04-09, 07:51 PM
MEEEEEE, I got given an a/f regalis, 2 Hap slings, an alladin sling and I bought 2 lugardi and a sub MALE pachypus woohoo. I also borrowed 3 mm from James.

James Box
28-04-09, 12:25 PM
i went, it was great! lots of great spiders etc, some great bargains too...best of all of course, it was great to see all the people that went!

i got Chilobrachys sp Aladdin x2, H albostriatum x4, Liocheles waigiensis, Smeringurus maesensis, Thelcticopis modesta x3, Alipes g grandidieri, P lugardi, Grammostola sp Concepcion, Avicularia sp Peru Purple, and Aphonopelma sp "Guatemalan Blue", which is so psychotically skittish and intractable, it makes lividum seem like a walk in the park to rehouse!!!
though less bitey.

Yvonne Woolley
28-04-09, 01:47 PM
:D Likewise James it was so good to meet up with people again, I only brought my 3 Pandinus cavimanus a Heterometrus mysorensis, and a Euathlus sp Velvet mountain beauty.We could really do with some more Spider and invert sellers at these little events as they really are enjoyable and make great meeting pionts throught the year, I myself would like to make contact with people in and around my area and have a meet or a Spider at home day, it seems such a shame only to meet up so few times in the year don,t you think? Great to see you James and Mary and Mark etc and everone who found me out and said hello.Maybe a B.T.S. table would be worth thinking about!!!! in the future.

James Box
28-04-09, 04:41 PM
there was a BTS table there, actually!
Paul Carpenter was there selling C marshalli and T modesta, and i think some others?! i am actually kicking myself for not getting C marshalli lol

casual spider meetups at people's houses are great...have been to a few. Peter Lacey has done a couple down Essex way, for example.
they often involve a trip to the local pet shop (if it's worth it) and just alot of chat. also people bring a few interesting specimens just to show off lol

mary walters
29-04-09, 07:45 AM
When I am over this leg there will be a meet at ours again, we have had 3 so far in last 18 months lol.

Oh yeah I also got an Avic amazonica sling and THEEE most beautiful Selenocosmia ardnsti from Lee, there's a pic on AP, can't put it up here cos I have exceeded my limit doh!!!

Leanne King-Smith
30-04-09, 03:57 PM

1 x B.Albiceps large sling
1 x B.Schroederi large sling
