    I have some Grammastola porteri (rosehair) slings if interested. I will do 25 @ $3 each. They are 1i now so would have to wait until 2i.

    I was just looking at the unrestricted list again .. Grammastola porteri is not on the list we have Grammastola Rosea, Grammostola pulchra and Grammostola pulchripes that we can keep.. I have been reading some debate that Porteri and Rosea are just different color forms of the same species .. I will have to clarify that getting caught with an unrestricted species is 1,000 fine and /or 1 year in Jail ..

    I've heard of this....but I think that they are classified as 2 different species under the same genus. G. rosea or "RCF" is the red color form rosehair but it's not a porteri. If they were 2 different color forms of the same species then they would be called something like G. porteri and G. porteri "RCF" and vice versa. I'm certain they are categorized as 2 different species, however, I may be wrong.....

    I surely don't .. it is a debate I have read on a lot of pages .. along with the notion they have been crossed and there are a lot of hybrids out there ..

    There are more than two different species or "Rose Hairs". Grammostola porteri, Grammostola rosea. G. sp concepcion, G. sp mauel. G. sp northern gold. All are similar except G.rosea its very red compared to the rest.
    Species that are marked "sp" are not currently recognized and or described via taxonomy but G. rosea and G. porteri are described as different species. If your not sure on a species join the world Spider catalog its free and you can check the accepted specie sand find taxonomy papers to read.

    How about some links to Maine's laws regarding T's you can and cannot keep. I'm not aware of species specific restrictions regarding tarantulas normally its no you cant keep or yes you can. Are you sure your not reading what you can and cannot Import from out of country? Not a lot of states have restrictions for bringing captive bred/raised Tarantulas across state lines. Chile has temporally closed its borders to certain species being exported is that where this is coming from?

    Wow!! that doesn't make any sense regarding tarantulas none of them would become invasive. I can see CITIES species being prohibited but not captive bred ones just imports.
    What are the other Maine hobbyists doing to keep T's? Not much of a selection, maybe the law is old before all the new species came into the hobby.

    Yes it is said and no this is actually new the list was update maybe a month ago before that there where no legal species of inverts not even feeder species .. Members of Maine Herpetological society have been very active in fighting for new species to be add and fighting against prohibitive legislation .. one which would have banned all exotics defined as any non native animal or fish .. as it is we are still waiting for them to up date the permit applications .. However the cost of acquiring one will greatly out weigh the benefits requirements are I believe 6 months training, and 1 million in liability insurance .... as to the endangered species they also amended the law so that if you have one and they breed you are required by the state to turn over all offspring to be put down ... the list is not much but we gained a lot of species .. Mostly in fish though .. I think 10 pages are fish the other 8 are everything else ..

    as to what others are doing .. if they have restricted species .. they are keeping their mouths shut and not letting anyone know or see them ..

    Based on your photos, my T looks like the first one. But I thought I had a rose hair. I'm a newbie so common terms would help me out.
    Does this mean I don't have a rose hair? Or do I still call the porteri a rose hair?

    What's the common name for the porteri?
