I Had one of these for a few months.I was expecting it to be a monster but it wasn`t I saw no aggression from it what so ever.It was very active always on the move but to be honest I think it was finding adjusting to captivity hard.I think I`m correct in saying that these spids are not bred in captivity at the moment so are always wild caught least that`s what I was told.
Finding useful information on them was hard theres an awful lot of rubbish out there to sift through and laugh at.
After a couple of months mine stopped feeding and died don`t know if it was old when i got it or if it was something I did or didn`t do I`ve since found out they are difficult to keep so I`ll be sticking to T`s from now on, shame though it was a fascinating little creature.

I would be suprised if any1 has any. I havent known of any imported recently, and at best they have opnly been maintained for a year. They are not good pets because of this
They are only small, but possess two jaws, they have the strongest bite in comparison of its size of any invert, probably any animal, so i have read.
They are formidable in their own environment but suffer highly from stress in captivity.
Most people willl have seen this image of them.. This is nothing but camera trickery.. notice that they are not as big as the guys leg, lol its the position of the creature in regards to the camera.. They grow no more than 6inch at the most and much of that is only because of their front legs.
