    Although i have kept many species of arthropod, this is my first amblypygid. I never believe i can keep these beautiful creatures before.

  6. a little concerned

    Cute little baby amblypygid came quick and well packed. The only slight problem i have is with the small terrarium i purchased to house it has faily big air holes. Im not sure if the whip spider can fit between them, but it appears to try. Not to worry though as ive set up netting on the top so escape is impossible.

  7. Favourite place to order from

    This is my second amblypigid I've bought from Minibeast. Always well-packed and healthy specimens. Would recommend to anyone!!

  8. Very unique small arachnid

    Posted by Smithers on 28th Apr 2016

    It's no "Mr. Tickles", but for those that don't mind the smaller bugs it's great. Very happy that they're for sale and was quite pleased with the service.

  9. Fascinating and awesome hunter
