    2.crickets
    3.5-6 years maybe? not sure
    4.yes
    5.Easy to keep but you must give them verticle structure in order to molt. The first one I got several years ago died trying to molt because I didnt give it something to climb on.
     
  4. These are so cool, I've allways wanted one of those!

    Kidsticulator,
    That is the one on fear factor. They live for about 5-7 years. They do not grow terribly quick, but do put on good size with each molt.

  18. does anyone know the purpose of the "whips" ?? I would like to get one of these they are quite interesting! very different from the whipscorpions in NA.

    the whips (as far as I know) are their sensory organs, used to sense the world around them.

    Arachnophilist, several of the CDN dealers have these for sale (You can pm me if you need their websites)

    Goliath: I hope these two reproduce, will be very cool to breed these :) and have a big colony.
     
  20. Goliath

    You are correct Mori. The whips are their main sensory organ. Eyesight is not so great, so they rely on the whips, which are covered in short stiff hairs that pick up any vibration. This warns them of danger or alerts them of prey.

    You should be able to get a good colony going, get a couple more females if you can, just don't put another male in the tank. It will not turn out good.:(
