Cool, congratulations! :3:

I think I saw the tail end of mine mating about a week ago. It looked like how scorpions do it. Does that sound right?

So, it takes about 4 months?

WOW! That's one of the coolest amblypigid photos I've ever seen! Congratulations on the little ones. Definitely something to document. Very cool...

AlexG, are you sure that it is Damon variegatus, not D.diadema?

If i'm not wrong, D variegatus are smaller than Diadema right? My buddy has a pair of D diadema, and they are bigger than mines, I never did researches to make sure, I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure they are Variegatus!

btw I have 38 babies..pics to come! ;)

Thx
Ciao

Great job! If you are getting rid of any you should have no trouble finding them homes. ;)
