Damon medius didn't eat and died

So we got our male damon medius about a month ago and since then it hasn't eaten at all and today we found it dead.

We did try feeding mealworms and small crickets by thongs and also by leaving some food animals in the enclosure for hunting but nothing was ever eaten.

We followed every guide and the enclosure had enough space and high enough humidity for them and now we are wondering if there was anything we could've done differenty or if this was just a bad luck.

A girl? Or a boy?

So last time when I was renovating amblys cage I tried to get a photo of their underside, but it was hard to see. But guess what pose amblys in when I checked on them today!

So I got this pic of their underbelly really good in my opinion? So can anyone tell if amblys a girl or a boy? Also maybe telling me how to sex a phrynus whitei or amblys from the phrynus genus in general

Saw my first amblypygid in the wild. Anyone have thoughts on ID?

Found in a partially hollow tree in Erawan national park, Thailand. Based on a cursory google search of endemic species to thailand, I am thinking maybe Stygophrynus? Quite small, possibly a juvenile or whipling. Maybe 3/8 in or so body length.

Tailless whip care

Hello, I’ve really been wanting to get a Tailless whip scorpion but I don’t know a lot about them. Wondering all the basic stuff like temperature, humidity, how often to feed them, and just things they need in general. Also want to know what species are the best to keep and more hardy. I have a 20x20x30cm tank.

Whitei has been moving to the ground after catching a meal.

This specific specimen is (roughly) 16-18 months old. And I have only seen him on the bottom of his enclosure maybe twice, once when I first put him in it. And another time when I startled him while misting the walls for easy water access.

The last three weeks he has grabbed his meal as soon as it’s been introduced and taken it to the ground to eat it. Is this cause for concern?

I wouldn’t say anything if he had ever shown an interest in the ground before but he’s the only specimen I have that actually uses the very top of his enclosure. The others just remain vertical and I occasionally catch them traveling along the bottom to hang from the cork across the middle of their enclosures

species for first time keeper, 12x12x18

i have an open 12x12x18 and im doing some research about getting some sort of tailless whip scorpion. ive seen several listed as "beginner" species, but what would do best in a tank this size? i plan on setting up the tank and figuring out exactly how to maintain humidity levels for at least a few weeks& to let everything settle.

Good key for species ID?

I recently got an amblypygid at a local pet store, I found my really pass it up, I have wanted one for forever and it was only $25, only issue is it was just labeled as “tailless whipscorpion” and I’d love to get a better idea of what exactly I purchased. Not really sure if there are any specific species that are most commonly offered. It definitely wasn’t wild collected or at least not in my area, as there are none here locally. Are there any decent keys that could allow me to identify it or particular traits I could look for? I’m pretty sure it’s not an adult yet, so I understand I might need to wait until then, but either way, any advice is appreciated!

Is this a good set up?

So I just recently set up two little terrible one main big one and a second smaller one? Do you think this would be good for phrynus whitei, barbadensis or margin?

Any improvements could also helps I tried giving 2-3 places to hang from and there is a mesh lid they could potentially reach?

Is mini beasts a good seller?

So with a lot of comments discussing how p.whitei may be the best species for me I decided to start looking and I found that mini beasts is selling some and I’m pretty sure they ship here in canada, but I have some worries? I don’t know if there a good seller,

Plus the photo there using might not be a p.whitei since it doesn’t have the patches under its eyes and the legs have banding?
