    Has anyone ever heard of these being bred or sold in the U.S. ? I'd really like to have a few. All I see is ads for them in Australia and the UK. I know its like pulling teeth getting anything into or out of Australia, but surely someone has...?

    I may just make do with the golden hunstman. I've only found one baby so far though :mad: They're supposed to be really docile, and motherly to their young. Interesting.:)

    Cool little spiders huh? I'll be looking for them in the spring, I'm sure I'll find some, probably from bugzincyberspace. I'll keep you posted.

    A guy on AB is selling Giant Australian huntsman spider slings, however they are Holconia insignis, not Typostola Barbara.
