I have heard they're found in large numbers together in the wild sometimes but I've seen much worse cannibalism with these guys in captivity. Of course it doesn't change how you define the social relationship, many ant colonies eat their own young in captivity.same paper said the Paraphrynus species in FL is dang near communal, though
yep. juv. species can be keept together, then later males kill each other. females tolerate other females.Just wanted to make sure I read that correctly:
P. marginemaculata females are tolerant of one another, but not the males, yes?
Sorry to hijack, King...
very social is of course E.bacillifer (not all species Michiel, amanica knows noone, so you cannot say it), diadema. QUOTE]
I was just reproducing, in my own words, what Wheygoldt wrote in his 2000 book. So, that only one or two Damon and one or two Euphrynichus species can be kelpt together in pairs. The fact that not many people know E.amanica, does not change this information from Wheygoldt, doesn't it?
I am not sure I fully understand what you mean...:? If I gave wrong info, or misinterpreted something, please let me know, as I am only beginning to learn about these creatures.
Hi Michael,hi Michiel,
hmmm then you had to citation the book before...
WEYGOLDT Peter (2000): Whp spiders (Chelicerata: Amblypygi) Their Biology, Morphology and Systematics.
in adults a lot of the species can be keept for a while together, this is fact... much more, also Dr.Weygoldt just know yet and noone knows, and we had to try it by ourself. In fact i breed a lot of the guys, and can tell you a lot on them.
that'S not the point my friendHi Michael,
No, citation was not needed, because I did not cite, but I put information derived from the book in my own words. Citation is only needed, when you reproduce information literally from a certain source.
I already noticed in our last telephone call,that you know a lot about whip spiders
That is not true.Citation is only needed, when you reproduce information literally from a certain source.
This is about if a citation is needed, I know the definition and purposes of a citation, but thanks for posting it anyway. I am stating these things from a Law point of view and if you would sue me for the above, you would not have a case. We are on a forum here, where people continously share knowledge, and I don't see a lot of citations while people share knowledge, and that's logical because it is not necessary. It is not that I published other peoples intellectual property as my own in a scientific magazine or something. In that case you both would have point, but now you don't. Btw, I believe in protecting intellectual properties so don't get me wrong please.That is not true.
"A prime purpose of a citation is intellectual honesty; to attribute to other authors the ideas they have previously expressed, rather than give the appearance to the work's readers that the work's authors are the original wellsprings of those ideas." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citation
