    Vaejovis cf. pequeno, adult female (Mexico)

    It is not really a U.S. native species, but it is close enough, I hope!:D

    Picture 5.jpg
    Vaejovis cf. pequeno second instar baby. They are only about 4-6 mm. long. As you can see, they need a steady supply of micro-insects.

    beautiful pics :)! I love how small that vaejovis is, even the cricket leg is almost twice its size!
     
  18. Thanks for the kind words. Actually, that baby is slightly larger than that. The appearance of the pictures on this board differ from the appearance of the pictures on other things (i.e. my camera). But, yes, the babies are very tiny!;)

    Vaejovis sp maybe paysoninsis or somthing similar. Found today at high elevations around 7000ft, in a very moist environment. I found two, hopfully enough to breed.
