    US Captive Reared Albuquerque slings: Phidippus Johnsoni, and Phidippus Carneus slings for $20 as well as older Phidippus Comatus slings for $25.

    The pregnant mothers were caught locally in Albuquerque. The slings were born in captivity and start losing their instinctive fear of people pretty quickly, such that the oldest Phidippus Comatus slings have no fear of humans and like to use my hand as a jungle gym. I made a free wiz website...

    This male had escaped and was found outside with a wound on his head- i think he tried to court an audax or johnsoni and got nipped on the head. She's absolutely bursting with eggs!
