No, I never got a mail...

hmmm, i didn`t measure anything, but i think some P.orientalis are the longest... with around 10,5cm femur/tibia of the pedipals... so double this, and add the carapace in the middle and you got the fully lenght

What do you feed your Amblypygids? I have been feeding crickets but moved to B. dubia roaches. They are not working out as they dig under the substrate and stay buried a long time. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to NOT buy crickets. :razz:

I have to say again I am really impressed with your collection. It seems like everytime I browse through something else is noticed that I didn't before! Keep posting pics, please!

i am absolutely amazed that a collection of this caliber even exists. i have seen more species in this thread than i even knew existed in captive care anywhere, including zoos/research facilities. all ive ever known until this thread were maybe 5 different species. quite a few of these have made it to my want list. i thank you greatly for sharing pics of your collection, you have opened up a new avenue of possibilities for me. please keep the updates coming. i have gone thru this thread front to back many times just to see the pics of species ive never heard of before, again absolutely amazing

i feed normal crickets- Acheta domesticus, i need every week around 2000pcs in all sizes :)
and for the small nymphs of e.g. Sarax spp. i feed fruit flies- Drosophila sp.

:) that's what i want to hear, people should get into it, and love it like me- cause it is realy hard to keep all this species in a good breeding group alone, just a handfull it out for some other interested people, and i hope they don't loose their motivation to breed them over a period of years...

It is best not to look at Michaels' pictures anymore. Believe it is for your own sake! I found these ugly, dirty animals (although I keep T's and scorps) and I was sure never to keep these.........But because of looking at these pics and Michaels' love for keeping and breeding these, now I have some too!
Don't say I didn't warn you! :)

beautiful collection
It would be nice if there were more available but how can they be more available if we don't know where to acquire them?
