Easiest & Rarest Tarantula to breed at the moment ?

I don't breed. The T's I keep, I keep for the love of them. I still want Balfouri, not for the $ but because they are so pretty. If they do breed in a communal setup, then so be it. I have solutions to that situation. But I don't think it's a good idea to try to breed for cash only. But to each his own.

Yep after 10 years of tarantula keeping I'm only starting to breed now.

Or in other words what the most profitable species is to breed?(are there other factors to have in mind for example , number of eggs?)

I'm also trying to get a general idea if people are breeding to make some money out of it or are they doing it for the fun of it.

I am a first time breeder having recently bred my brachypelma vagans so I am really interested in what most people think on the subject.


To come back to your question, as for easiest verses rarest, I don't think there is a species like that, every spider has it difficulties and tricks to get them to drop and every "breeder" has success to a degree or 2, so you could choose a spider and go for it, you might surprise your self and get 100 percent success of the bat or you might battle for the next 2 years.

Over the years "we" have been having more success with breeding of the rarer species but we still not at the top of the breeding game just yet.

And any breeding attempt is a risk at best, and when you expect to make gang cash from that rare egg case(don't count your chickens before they hatch) and it does not come to light you are doing it for the wrong reason.(this is my feelings)

Any spider/stock will sell, if your price is right and you find the gap in the market you will move your stock.
You also don't want to drop your prices to low.

The direction the hobby has moved into is mixed up, some people are in it to get rich, other are in it for the love of it, others are in it for the titles of breeding the biggest and the best(have only meet 2 of these people :D )
Allot of people even myself use what we have breed or have to expand collections, so money one makes from breeding or selling spiders goes back into ones hobby.
It is normally these members that are not there to get rich but just to have some extra cash to buy new spiders and have fun. I'm a big fan of the art of bartering,

But, with that being said, everyone is here for there own reason, weather you want to breed to get rich or you want to do it for the fun then go for it.

I just feel that people are over pricing with spiders and just in it for the wrong reasons but one just has to look past the negative aspects and focus on what is the most important in ones hobby :happy: noob

I feel this is the truest form of the hobby. Then also people just being awesome, as in someone gives you a sling or juvenile for free. I hope to one day be in the position to give freely.

I agree with you Edrich.

Breeding to sustain the hobby not breeding for money.
