Hi all,
I was wondering what the best set up for amblypygids would be? I am seriously thinking about buying a couple of these. They seem like there real neat.

Amblypygi Enclosure

Of course your going to need an arboreal enclosure. Several pieces of cork-bark and maybe some fake plants work well for retriets. Substate should be peat or potting soil. Mist once a day to keep the humidity up, the amblypygids will also drink the drops. Dont keep them to hot though as they like it somewhat cool.

they are not the easiest of inverts to keep, IME they are very humidity sensitive. fascinating though!

Thanks for the help! I'm sure when I get them I'll have more things to ask.:)
