A late response but... I know the feeling of trying to track down spiders. I recently acquired a nice group of founder adults and have been trying to add to the colony with no success. I hatched over 150 P.a.a from 2002 to 2008 and they ended up around the country. When I inquired with some of the owners none wanted to part with their "pets". The good news is that almost all of the cb spiders were still alive and doing well. Like Will, I parted with my breeding group in 2009 and have found that trying to start up again is very difficult. The group I have now will very likely become a dead end. Of course, with Madagascar in its current state and the fact that most biologists see CB animals as unfit for wild conditions, pyxis will probably end up relics in private collections.
