    I traded some Neps for them. The guys name is Todd Gearhart. He owns trantulaspiders.com. He posted on CPUK that he wanted to trade spiderlings for Neps. I think he would still make trades for Neps he doesn't have, if anyone else is interested. So far he seems to have a good trading spirit. I have received the spider and he hasn't received anything yet.

    Oh wow Doug! I haven't seen any of your invertibrits pictures before, she is beautiful! I have never seen one like that before! I have to ask, how do you go about breeding them? Are they like some of the other bird eating spiders were the males only live a little while? And also can you tell a spiderlings gender right away or only after a little while? I can't get one or anything right now, but I've always wonderd about these things.

    SIH, congrats on getting some cool spiderlings [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Actually Finch they are the legendary "bird eating" spider though birds make up only a small percentage of their diet along with bats and other small vertebrates and the larger perrcent goes to insects such as roaches and whatever as adults.
    The Avic versicolor are very beautiful and colorful. He has A. avic and A. versicolors for trade if I am not mistaken.

    hehe yeah i enjoy them!! well this is gonna be my first breeding attempt so we'll have to see! usually you just put the male in with the female and they do a bit of drumming and a courtship dance and then they converge on each other and hopefully the male gets tha job done without ending up as a meal! with this species ( A. avic) they have been found to be nearly communal so i plan on just tossing him in there and see what happens. if they seem cool then i'll leave him in there to make sure he gets the job done! darcie, you are correct in that the males only live to their ultimate molt (adulthood) and then their only inpulse is to mate and they eventually die in a few months or so. Determining the sling's sex cannot be done untill they are around 2 inches or so. this can be done via a shed skin or by examining an area on its underside between the 2 body segments. and superimposedhope is correct in that adult versicolors make A. avics look lame and a half!! lol enough ramblings!!!

    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me
