Thought I’d start a thread about all of my whipspider sp. Granted I only have 3 but they’re one of my personal favorite species and I’m really hoping to breed all of them.

1.1 Damon medius, I had the female for about a little less than 2 years until I finally just got a male.

Phrynus whitei, another personal favorite species. I have 4 specimens total, 3 definite females and one inconclusive one. I think it might be a male but I’ll wait to pair them to find out.
1.1(?) pair

Female eating, this one mismolted evident by her curled legs and missing antenniform legs, but has been tongfed snd even took a roach down by herself(affectionately named Stubbs). These whitei have been the best eaters I’ve had so far, all eating on broad daylight and dispatching food in less than a minute for me.

Paraphrynus cf. raptator or laevifrons, a bit confused on locale so I’ll probably wait for it to grow up.

Phrynus barbadensis, 1.1. First species I’ve bred, still waiting for the eggs to hatch. Learned a lot(mostly patience) with this sp

1.1 pair

Quick update- checked on the barbadensis female and looks like eggs are close to hatching..hopefully by the end of this month to mid-December they’ll have hatched

Wow! That Barbadensis pair looks great, hopefully mine can grow up like that. Congratulations on the hatch!

Very nice collection! Speaking of mismolts , I am just wondering, if a spider (true spider in general ) looses a leg in a mismolt or something will it grow back eventually?

If it’s full grown then it’s likely not going to regrow it, immatures regrow over s couple molts

Not entirely sure why but these have been a bit slow to start eating, although this one spent a good few hours working on a roach abdomen
