    I'd love those also(Buddhistadam is correct on his ID's btw!), but vinegaroons would be most preferred. Thing about the tailess whips is that they are very fragile as far as being grabbed goes.

    Since common names are 100% useless, "whip scorpions" are uropygids, and the "tailess" ones are amblypigids. They (Amblypigi) are actually much more closely related to Acari and Araneae than Scorpiones.

    If you're interested, look for Solifuges too. They have the most powerful jaws in the animal kingdom (for their size)

    Would that be more of an Italian or vinaigrette bug-butt dressing?

    I'll keep an eye out at the next Reptile and bug show. And if it keeps spraying me with bug-butt dressing while packing it... omg you better be ready to send some uber plant.

    Forget the rocks and rodent burrows, it would appear that these things dwell in sofas or other upholsteried surfaces.

    Doubt I'll be running across one in Ohio, but I'll let you know if I do. I'm not so sure just what I'd do if I did come across one of those around here.

    Haha, yeah thats more like it. They are sold at reptile stores on the occasion, but unless you really think these plants are worth that money I wouldn't buy one just to ship it to me. They will spray if they feel threatened but once kept in captivity for a time usually stop...but then again packing them up for shipping will be pretty threatening. Air holes so it doesn't gas itself is a must!

    omg... i gotta be honest here. If I ever saw any of those bugs I would throw a rock at them and run away screaming like a little girl. But then again, I live in California, so no worries there .
