e-spiderworld still has more Brachypelma smithi spiderlings, of various sizes:
Brachypelma smithi, Mexican Redknee, .5", $25
Brachypelma smithi, Mexican Redknee, 1.25", $40
Brachypelma smithi, Mexican Redknee, 2", $65
One half inch larger (and sexed as a female) and she'd cost $150, though a 3" male is only $100. I'd still like to get a young one. I'm just not sure I want one quite as young.
I'm giving it some thought. And I'm waiting to hear back from Eric. He is never quick to read/reply to email, so I'm not holding my breath.
