    really? did not know that. i remember coming upon individuals like that when i was a kid. is the vibrio virus lethal to them? i use these guys to feed my plants. feed them flake food and they seem to enjoy it.

    Is the blue/purple the color indicating infection or is that a specific species?

    I was wrong on the virus name, it is actually a iridovirus that turns them blue/purple.

    There's a guy who runs an online invert shop that just posted his updated list on the Tarantula forums who's selling a half dozen or so different species. The biggest species he has gets to 3/4"! I'm just gonna work with these orange guys for now be nice to have huge orange ones. Maybe it could be a breeding experiment later on.

    I've been considering getting some crab spiders from him and see if they'll take up habitation in and hunting from N. rafflesiana pitchers. I'll have to find a big N. raff cutting to run this biotope experiment.
