    Today, searching for scorpions and centipedes I've found this little fella :)
    I've caught it under a stone, in mountains, near Afyonkarahisar city, Anatolia, Turkey.





    I've found article about turkish Solifugae. In Nidge area, which is quite close to my place, they've found 13 species, from 6 families (!).
    So.. any ideas about specie ?

    If you need other photos give me a sign. I'll do my best.

    The only thing i'm sure of, jugding by the tarsal segmentation, is that it belongs to the Galeodidae.

    The fastest and the most aggreessive invertevrates I've ever seen.

    Any chance for key to genera ?

    I'm not sure where .. I read an article stating that they can have longer life spans in captivity. something about them hibernating and not needing fed as often.
    I know that's not your question but food for thought .
