    They don’t seem very keen on live crickets or red runners quite yet, but they took to some pre killed hesitantly.

    These are beautiful! (Seems to be a recurring theme with the animals you have) I’m floored as well, never been a huge fan of Amblygi but these look awesome!

    So glad these are still being sold in the US--was worried they were gone. Absolutely lovely specimens you've got there.

    They had them on bugs and cyberspace about a week ago, but I missed my chance :depressed:

    I'm definitely in this for the long game--my suitemates this year don't like the idea of them--so this is good information. I was convinced Peter Claussen wasn't selling them anymore.
    Let us know if you manage to breed them :woot:

    I'll definitely be trying! @dragonfire1577 picked up one as well so we'll likely work together towards some babies.

    Dang, I'd emailed Peter about those as well. Guess I know why there hasn't been a response lol. Ah well, maybe next year then. Congrats on the beautiful new additions!

    I know they won’t adults for a while but definitely put me on the list for one :)

    You guys are funny... These were clearly born this year. It takes H. batesii around 4-5 years to reach a size where it can reproduce successfully, and you are already calling dibs.
    (not to mention - there are H. batesii being offered right now if you just care to check the sale ads)

    As soon as I have understanding housemates, the sale ads will not be able to escape me.

    I heard rumors that F1 Euphrynichus amanica would be for sale at some point--anyone know anything about that?

    I've been really interested in Amblypygi since I got to see them in person when I was little. Hopeful I'll get to have some someday.

    Your guys look awesome! It'll be so cool when they're grown :D.

    These guys have kinda exploded in size and are still amazing eaters, figured some updates photos were overdue!

    If only they weren't so 'spensive. Keep it up @Sarkhan42! I'm hoping they continue to do well for you; it's obvious by the above posts we need more of these in the hobby :D.

    Thanks for sharing,
