Wow! What a GREAT set of pictures! Thanks for posting them. This is a type of invert I haven't tried to keep yet but someday I will give it a try.

Amazing pictures. I've never seen the majority of those species and some of them are very cool.

wow, wow, and wow!
Neat collection, one of the most complete I've seen :)

Would it be possible to get you to describe some of their set-ups?

Thanks in advance,

OR

Sweet photos, sure is a ton of variety in their claw shape. I honestly don't know a whole lot about these guys...i've never considered keeping any either, but I suppose it's just because I don't know squat about how. They are so alien-like!

The eggs photo kind of boggles my mind they are so big, and the babies on the back look like intestines haha. Crazyness! I'd like to know what care they need to, just in case.

Hello,
it depends on the species, on the region where it is from, most of the species can be kept at 25°C 12hours night day and very wet- so high humidity, but you realy had to know what species and where from... and of course big boxes, that they can molt upside down with the head, etc.

You have A. coronatus! Not sure how I missed that last time. Cool.

Would you care to speculate on why some of the males' palps in some species are so incredibly long? Adapted to catching flying prey at a distance or...?

Edit: Great website BTW...with references! Yay!

From what I've noticed when they hunt, the longer the legs and spines on them the better chance they would have to impale their prey...even a little one (under a centimeter body) can be felt or at least heard clearly, hitting the ground trying to get prey below them. They hold their arms at a rightish angle to the ground and then swiftly thrust down to grab/impale. It's wonderful to watch. {D

Man, there needs to be a sticky of these. not much info out there!

Anyway. I picked up 4 of these little guys but got 6(thanks John!)

Damon diadema 2nd and or 3rd instar.



All 6 I have are small ranging from 8 to 10mm body length. Will be fun watching them grow.

I wish there was more info and species readily available. I can see how these could become an addiction by themselves! Fascinating creatures!

Cody, if you can get that shot, you honestly should have no problem with your 'pede sexing photos;)
