Cool. Is that a Damon diadema? I think it's a female. Males have very long pedipalps and females have shorter ones.
The one in my avatar is a male.

I swear I must be one of the few people to like these. I was even at an insect/bug show at cornell and I somehow ended up holding one. The guy who I asked if I could handle it looked at me like I was some kind of freak and said: "Are you sure you want to handle it?" and the whole time he had a shocked expression on his face.

Yea, it's not the danger or scary factor it's just that they are creepy and seem unnatural.

I have that problem with solifugids (Wind scorpions, wind spiders, camel spiders, sun spiders, sun scorpions, whatever you want to call them) I just think they are kind of creepy. They also eat scorpions and can run up to 10 mph, so thats part if it.

i'm not sure on the species mate, i've narrowed it down to Damon.
they walk like a crab, but make random darts forwards, which is very fast.

they don't seem right, you'd think it was an insect since it uses it's front legs as antenae

I don't know how you guys don't like them. Shocked But have any of you ever seen a solifugid? Now those are creepy. (In my opinion)

The legends are funny. They can however run up to 10 mph and some have five inch legspans.

I don't own any. I was going to get some (thats why I know alot about them) but then I saw H. swammerdami for sale and I got the last one left. Also I see them every year at the bug show at cornell.
