I am loving this Ambly craze... which species are available in the US? I have P. marginemaculatus, D. diadema soon to be on the way, but am very interested in acquiring other species. Beautiful pictures, all.

hmm you know the climate condition in florida... i keep them normally @27°C with more or less humidity (i never measure it-i just put water once a week inside the boxes), and for some weeks a little bit colder.... whips need time.. .a lot of time :)

Hi,this is not a H.batesii species... either H.longicornis, or something else!! :)

You need a lot of time and patien, and knowing the right people... I travel also a lot and try to find a lot of them in nature and see their natural enviroment, etc. ... I breed them now since 11years... so take time :)

i can say what it is not ;)
no charon, no heterophrynus or other phrynidae... damon or phrynichus spp.
for the rest I need more details.

interesting. Thanks! I am just now starting to get into the Amblypygi, so the head's up is most appreciated. :) What did you notice that helped ID him? I love your collection, by the by!
