Florida Whipspider Phrynus marginemaculatus


Out of stock


The Florida whipspider Phrynus marginemaculatus is known for being the easiest species to breed in the hobby and partly because they are moderately communal. They can be kept together in the same tank with a low incidence of cannibalism. These elusive arachnids are neither spider, nor scorpion. Whipspiders, sometimes called tailless whipscorpions, rely on vibration and touch to perceive the world around them. Two legs have evolved into “feelers”. These antennae-like structures detect prey. Like scorpions, they have two claw-like appendages for grasping live prey.

Medium to large specimens available, unsexed.

Truly one of the most unusual bugs, and they’re non-venomous.
