Anyone got any information on these guys? Any chance I can buy them online somewhere?

Here's a video clip of "Fear Factor" where they try to eat them. This was the first time I saw them, and I've done some research but have come up pretty empty handed.

And here is a decent pic of a "Whip Scorpion", assumingly, the same or similar.

These arachnids are closely related to scorpions....but they are not actually spiders at all.....They are found worldwide....and I have caught species in Central america as farnorth as southern Mexico.

Do some google searching with the following:

Tailless Whip-Scorpions (Amblypygi,Phrynidae)....genus Daemon, genus Paraphrynus, Phrynus

and here is a good link for some pics a few species:


they are occasionally available through some importers lists glades herp had some last year....

I used to have one of those! it was so cool. if it got angry it would smell like vinegar. they are mostly blind and use their long front legs to feel their way around. very cool pet!

also look up vinagroon, which is alot like what you showed
