This place is one giant mountain full of all sorts of canyons and whatnot. I know they have been found on the mountain I live right next to. It has perfect habitat. The wet season is just starting too... So I am hoping this will give me a chance to see some. I´ll have to post some pics if I find them. I figure any habitat similar to what heros would be found in is where I would find these guys.I've been doing that with heat pads for a long time, it works great. I read you were over josh, watcha doing over there? I don't know what the life cycle of these things are, but what you said might give some clues. Over here they go under and stay there for a long time, even though it looks like it's not molting time(typical pede it seems though), so I could speculate and say they may go under in the dry season too, like you were thinking also. Don't know, are there any valleys and hills where you are? That's where they would be imo; creek-beds, cliffs with cracks, places like that is where I'd try to look. I'd especially try to find places with water seeping out of some places, maybe no way there are places like that around you?
