Baby Heterophrynus batesii, unlike Tanzanian Tailess Whips, these guys do not hug the sides of their environment, their legs protrude out like a crane.

Amblypygi- Phrynidae

Awesome pic, and species. The Phrynidae family is one of the most interesting Amblypygi families. Particularly the Acanthophrynus, which contain the worlds largest species.

Giant Tailess

The animal pictured is a 1 inch baby. The baby has grown to a 4inch juvie. As adults, their pedipalps can reach 8 inches across (males). Current breeding projects are underway and we hope to have more babies soon.

Fresh shed pic. Rounding out at around at a legspan of 5 inches, and still a juvie!! Really cool to watch, more active at night than African species. They have great appetites. They can be found at night in the same spot with pedipalps extended ready for prey!!

Many people have asked me for a near adult pic, here it is. Simply the coolest animal I've owned.
