    I was checking the pic of your pokie out, and my friend has a P.Formosa that is very like yours. Have a look at this pic of google.

    Michael.
    Thanks for that Michael - it's certainly the closest I've seen so far...
    she's quite a bit lighter than that, and doesn't have so much banding on her front legs - just the stripes going down them, strange how much individuals vary!

    Many thanks for the link - I'll have a look when she's next feeling co-operative!

    Tub looks fine to me.
    Becky sent me a link a few weeks ago on ventral identification, quite surprisingly different considering many look very similar (black and white stripes). See if you can identify from this: http://www.froschlurche.de/Poecilotheria-ventral.jpg

    OBTs you can often pick up for 10+ but I certainly wouldn't pay 40 for one. As they're easy to breed it helps to keep the costs down and you'll often find them available from forums.
    T. blondi aren't so easy to find and often fetch a hefty price, i've seen these as max 5" for 150!!! Hard to breed so that keeps the price high but if you're lucky you may find a spiderling for 20+. The slings are quite big even in their first moult.
    Pokies, lots to choose from and the price ranges but its not hard to find slings for 5+, 4" for around 20. The sought after metallica will fetch upwards of 35 just for a sling rising to 300 for a gravid female.
    Doubtless others will provide their opinions on prices but this gives you an idea of bargains or rip-offs. Its worth noting however that shop prices will be higher as they have overheads and they need to make a profit, but there's no postage. Online shops offer good selections and often guarantee live arrivals and replacements.

    I have ordered from them directly - highly recommended

    I'm sure the bloke will remember - he seemed very up on his spiders and gets most of his stock from Lee at the spider shop...
    They're all females and I paid 100 for the 3 spiders, an exo terra and some crickets, locusts and cork bark, so I couldn't tell you how much I paid for them individually

    I asked Sandy to pose nicely for some ventral pics and she obliged...
    sorry the pics aren't clear - the container isn't very see-through. I can try to get her in a clearer tub for pics if need be, but don't really want to disturb her til I know she's settled and eating etc.

    you've made some great choices there!
    gorgeous Pokie and blondi, and the OBT seems to be doing what OBT's do best, lurking

    i will be curious to see what that Pokie is...i went through all the species in the BTS galleries and nothing quite looks right!
    the front legs make me think of H maculata...lol
