    Just awesome!

    I am still in awe of these things. Sadly, I had one die for no reason. Maybe stress.

    It kept extending its pedipals outward and then literally died in an hour. stress from shipping I guess.

    So now I am down to 5.:(

    I do have a question. Are they safe to handle? they seem to fragile.

    Hi,
    ye of course, just be carefull with the whips, they often broke. But you can catch every whip spiders by hand, just be careful with their pedipals, so catch them from the back one finger ventral, one dorsal the abdomen.

    Okay, you seem to get the to breed effortlessly, how do you keep thm to do this? Do you just introduce the male into the females cage and hope for the best then remove him...what is your seceret?

    This thread is impressive. How exactly have you aquired all of these species?

    You must do your own collecting, as you surely cannot be buying these on the open market...Todd Gearheart is the only guy that carries anything besides D. diadema, some Phrynus and Heterophrynus...but dealing with him and his 7th grader designed website is worse than a trip to the dentist...JMO.

    I have diadema and Heterophrynus batesii, and am always looking for more. Obviously, A. coronatus is the main target.

    Peace

    They mate easily enough under proper conditions. The male deposits a spermatheca "sperm stalk" on the cork bark and the female fertilizes her eggs.

    Chef, do you have a time estimate from laying of the spermathacae to the young emerging from mom?

    As far as I can tell she went about 3 or 4 months could be longer as I had a few projects going at the same time and they kind of did their thing behind my back and she has done it again but this time I'll know how long she takes. I noticed the spermatheca just b4 Christmas and as of now the eggs are no longer visible

    LMAO!

    I placed (multiple e-mails to two adresses, PM's on venomlist) an over 700 euro order with him, never heard from him again.....very strange and by the way insulting way to do business. I'd rather eat my own socks, than order animals from that guy!

    hehe ;)
    the encloses are my secret.
    no, honestly, it is not easy to take the right shoots, cause the rooms are very small and long, so i cannot bring much on one picture...
    let' see here some old pix from my rooms (scorps and whips)
