    Those long whips are basically antennaes.
    from what i've seen, they often lurk under a rock with its long whips sticking out like trip-wires :)

    How do I tell the sexes apart in these? By looking at the pics.

    males have much longer pedipalps than females (when adult anyways) makes visually sexing them quite easy.

    I have been eyeing these up for a few years ...always planning on getting some, but never do. They are truely awsome looking ...along with a decent lifespan.
    I think once I get my life back ...and organized :rolleyes: I will try and find some.
    Did I understand this right that they are communal?
  6. in Adults the females pedipalp strucure is shorter than the femur of leg I and the male are longer than the femur

    do Amblypygid females live long after laying/tending eggs/hatchlings, as compared to Uropygid females, that usually die after the whole process of egglaying and sling tending?
  10. not sure, size? most animals are sold as adult unless otherwise stated

    Sweeeeeeeeeet! I just recently started keeping amblypygids and I'm hooked. I'm looking forward to adding a couple more in the near future.

    Did you buy a female that ended up being gravid or did they breed in your care? I'm interested in any and all information I can gather on care and breeding. Best of luck with the babies.

    The female here is about 3" or so in body length, though here antennae (spelling?) are much longer than that.

    Gil, I mated a male and female, my male has since passed away though.

    I just let them do their thing, he made a couple of spermatophores that I could locate.
