    Having had my S.hardwickei for a month or so, I thought I'd have a go with one of the East Asian bad-boys and took delivery of a 6" specimen of S.subsinipes (Vietnam).

    What a powerful creature! and totally different in attitude to the hardwickei...

    I can see why there's been little change over the past 420 million years or so.

    Yeah I will get another big one of those this summer for sure. Love them. I know there is a yellow leg, orange leg, and a red leg vietnamese. But yours sorta looks like a flame leg vietnamese if there is such a one.

    Cheers - my girlfriend got me a cracking 90mm macro lens for Christmas. The macro shot's a high crop of the third photo.

    Yes, yes, yes, oh my dear God yes, but luckily (despite many years of abuse) I've managed to retain the Sense area of my brain. Either that or I'm just a big, if unpleasantly hairy, girl........ :D

    It sure does. I think they hail from Thailand/Myanmar. Nice pick up, wherever they're from.
