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.

I love all scorpions and I have several common scorpions like bark or black scorpion. I would love to get more different types of scorpions; I would love to get this tailless whipscorpion.

I found one at a pet store near where I live and being the arthropod arachnid collector that I am, I just had to get it. I find it interesting to watch as it moves down towards the cork bark during the day and up to the top screen at night. My Tailless Whip Scorpion molted once and at this point I believe it is an adult but I could be wrong. I also believe it is a male because its pedipalps (front spiny arms) are very long to where the "elbows" extend past the length of the first segment of the walking legs on each side unlike your picture in which the "elbows" look to be a bit shorter than the first segment of the walking legs.

I was told these creatures were incredibly shy and I would not see them feed. My tail less whip scorpion ate infront of me in a fully lit room. It never ceases to mesmerize me. An amazing pet!
