Be a little careful if they are wild caught as they may have
intestinal mites or other problems.

If you are in the UK then try the following for this species as he may
well have some, even if only spiderlings:

Ray Gabriel (01793) 480692

Let him know that I sent you, thanks.

If you're not in the UK then let me know and I will contact him for
you aon your behalf. He frequently post tarantulas to the four corners
of the world.

Hope this helps?

Regards,

The scientific name is Pterinopelma saltator.  Don't have any pictures, but
they're two-toned (light brown and fawn grey) with a cream collar around the
carapace and leg joints.  There's a picture in a book called The Proper Care
of Tarantulas by Ann Webb ($18.00, US).  They're very docile.   emily

A couple of weeks ago, I asked Todd Gearheart of Glades Herps, and he
said they might get some wild caught in with their November shipment
from Argentina. They aren't too popular here, but are bred in Europe and
are popular in the UK.
