    Haven't seen any for sale on the vendor sites I check. I'd like one also eventually.

    Ehh, I'd be sceptical about picking one up, even if their numbers in the wild can support mass harvesting. There's so much hype around them, its only a matter of time before less than reputable breeders start selling a cheaper spider as the rare and exotic johnnycashi at a much higher price point. It's only a matter of time after that before the poor unknowing hobbyists start breeding them, maybe even hybridizing them with actual johnnycashi once they actually do get into the hobby.

    Honestly, as much as I'd like to have one, I don't I'd ever trust the market for them unless I caught my own specimen

    I was thinking the same...any fairly nondescript species at least.

    It feels weird being one of a few who actually own one of these.
