PostSubject: Phoenix AZ Hunt with Josh R. from SCABIES!   2/15/2008, 12:32 am

Hey all,

I had some business to attend to in Phoenix for the last couple days and when I went out there I called up Josh to see if he would be available for a Bug Tour of the surrounding area! Well we went to a few places and I will tell you I swear that Josh is the Arizona Bug God!!! I told him what I was after and he took me to the place to find it and we werent dissapointed at all!

I have brought back a few things and I will now show you what I have brought back. Most of these things were caught by Josh and I but two of these beautiful creatures were given to me by Josh's friend Dave. On to the pics:

Here is the one that everyone likes...hehe. Superstitionia donensis! I brought back about 6 or 7 of these of all sizes and this quite possibly gravid female!


Here are the three H. arizonensis that we came across!


Here are three C. exilicauda that we found! Notice that these are Bright Pumpkin Orange!!!


We came across a ton of V. spinigerus. They are as common as dirt but still very cool! I brought back 5 of them!


Here is a standard S. viridis that I brought home this one was one of two that were breeding when we found them and I did get the pair...hehe


Now here is a S. viridis "Blue" that was found mating with the one above. It's awesome that they keep this blue color when they are adults as well!


Josh found this Heteropoda sp. while we were out bugging. She looks like she might be gravid!


Here is a Loxoceles sp. that I found under the same mattress as the H. arizonensis. Steven, this ones for you!


Josh and I found two Banded Geckos while out bugging and they have different tails...One has spots while the other has stripes. Totally cool!



Now on to the things that were given to me from Dave! These two are definately way too cool!

Scolopendra Heros approximately 8"-9"


Large Gravid H. arizonensis


I want to thank Josh, his girlfriend Nicole and his buddy Dave for everything these past couple days! I have definately made a great new friend! I will definately be going back out to AZ quite often to hang out with them and do more hunting! Josh and I are already planning a Summer AZ Hunt!!! Anyone that is interested in going let me know and we will get this into full swing!

Thanks again Josh!

I doubt we'll get more. But I'm willing to trade and if you really want Arizonensis I'm only interested in the Gravid one. But I would want at least 2 more.

Oh shoot sorry man! If I would have known I would have called you when I was out there.

The first night we went just off of the 101 west and 51st Ave. The second day we went out by the White Tanks and then out to the Superstitions that night.

I will definately keep you updated for when I come back out there. I think Eddy and I are going to plan a trip to go out there this summer!

hey robert, ill take you to collect a banded heros. youll probly get a couple of them actually. as for the paloma, ill go out and grab u a couple females and there will be a VERY good chance they will lay egg sacs for you come late spring into summer. youll have them comming out of your ears. ill take you to the giant centruroides spot too. they are freakishly big. you can spot them in the black light from a mile away i swear! j/k. they are huge in this particular population tho.
