My whip scorpion hasnt had much of an appetite at all. It used to a couple crickets once a week but now it wont go near them. It seems like its scared of them or maybe something is wrong. Does anyone know? And if something is wrong how can i get it back to healthy? All the temps and humidity levels are correct btw.

     Prey size and type can sometimes make a difference for these guys. I've also read this, feed 'Turkistan roaches (slightly smaller than the body length of your whippling). Oriental roach is also preferred. American roach, okay but not as great,' and possibly goblin roaches may work.

    You can tell it's sex if the pedipalps on the front of its face are long and pass the first knee on the front walking legs. That would mean it's male, if female the pedipalps will be shorter and generally have more spines. Hope I helped.

How many crickets should you feed a tailless whip scorpion?

    They don't happen to be really big eaters so if you feed them 2 - 3 crickets a couple times a week that should do it.  If they only eat one - it is OK.  If they eat all 3, then I would go to feeding them 4 crickets.  You will be able to judge better by the feeding habits.

Do you have any left? I live in Florida, but go to school out of state and I had a bearded dragon but it passed, because it stoped eating because of shock to adapting to a new environment. And I still have his enclosure. And wanted to get one of these instead. Do you have any left?

I don't mean to pester you, but I'm interested in obtaining a female damon variegatus. If you could contact me at some point about availability that would be great.

    Hi David, I'm quite interested in getting several Tanzanian Whip Scorpions, but I can't seem to find any. I currently live in New Hampshire, and I'm not sure how well they would do if mailed. If you are aware of a more local source I would love to know. Also, if eggs could be mailed safely, would I be able to purchase some? My email address is:

    Hello I'm interested in adding a few tailless whipscorpions to my household. Are you offering the smaller florida whipspider (preferred due to it's diminuative size)? What's the cost plus priority shipping to central California? I'd want three or four maybe five of 'em. Jason

Hi David,
Don't know if you have any tailless whip scorpions remaining. I am interested in several.

In the description of the whipscorpion, it said something about them gaining notoriety for an appearance on Fear Factor. Another, little known, appearance of a tailless whipscorpion, I do not know the breed, is in the 4th Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The whipscorpion appears in about the beginning or the middle, where Professor Moody shows the students the unforgivable curses. The arachnid that he performs the curses on is, in fact, a tailless whipscorpion.
