    I was tempted to buy a Galeodes arabes from Todd, they are awesome, Alex!:D I went and saw the female of the species at about 4.5 inches.. and I thought it was a must have.


    It was using its chelicerae to slice and dice a cricket..
    Ultra-cool, yeh?

    Unfortunately, I only had a limited amount of money, and I settled on a 1/4 inch Brachyphelma smithi, after obsessing over nearly everything in his store...:rolleyes:

    DAAAAANG!

    With that many Genera, I'm surprised they are not more common, in my wild at least and in the Hobby. I guess they are just a bit too hard to culture.

    Yes, solifugids can be hard to culture. They are rarely bred in captivity and overall do not adapt to captive conditions very well. They are also very short lived arachnids with the longest lived species (Galeodes, Solpuga, Rhagodes) usually living no longer than a year.

    while i was deployed to the middle east, a bunch of us were playing cards and one of these bugs started chasing us. it was really really fast. we had to run to get away from it. if we would have walked, it would have caught up to us very easily. it must have chased us around for about 5 minutes. we later caught it and put it in a box with a bunch of other insects. that thing destroyed every living thing in there. after the death box had lost its fun some guys decided it would be best to freeze it in liquid oxygen. they then used a 2 part epoxy to preserve it in time. i believe the common name for these insects is the camel spider. if you ever see one, be ready to run.

    Did you try reading the post? What do you mean "What kind of arachnid is it?" As the title of the thread says it's a member of Solifugae. As to where you could get one, you might want to check out the many online dealers of arachnids...
