Harvestman/True Daddy-Long-Legs

Found this amazing opiliones species a few weekends ago. DLS may have been 5 inches but the body was only a centimeter or so. I want to try and culture these guys sometime, but I never find them in great numbers.
I find lots of these in the summer. They don't do well in captivity and most times usually die within days of been captured. They can also give a nasty bite which for some people can have a allergic reaction.
 
When I call then daday long-legs, my boyfriend yells at me. :rofl: He claims cellar spiders are the "true daddy long-legs"
 
I'm pretty sure they cannot pierce human skin but we have these all over the place in british columbia
 
They are everywhere here in Parker, Colorado too :)
I find them daily hanging out on the outside of my condo building.
