    Hello Invert fans

    first off, it is great to see so many others suffering from arachnophilia like myself.

    Finally found a source for some Amblypygi: look like wild caught Damon, the store swears they are medius, and I picked up the most active female, though she is missing both whips.

    She is gravid, But the eggs look dry, dark, and dead. My question is whether dead eggs pose a threat to her health? Do females often die trying to drop their egg sac? I have read a lot about them eating the eggs after being dropped, but just checking whether people have heard of other issues.

    Thanks so much

    Sure looks like Damon medius.

    I have never heard of anyone having problems with dead eggs.

    Agreed with D. medius. The female will drop them when she's ready.
