Camel Spiders (SA/A)
These arachnids are fast moving aggressive hunters with their massive jaws and it’s front legs work as feelers to detect and its prey. A challenging but interesting captive as always very active and grow very fast. These Arachnids are not scorpions and not spiders, they belong to their own order solifugidae. These are sometimes referred to as Wind, Sun or Camel spiders.
These are best kept in opaque enclosures with a deep sand/ coir based substrate. When heating the enclosure make sure there is a thermal gradient and make sure there is a night time drop in temperature. Its important to use lots of hides so they can find a place to settle as they can be easily stressed. If your Camel spider is pacing around all day more adequate hiding places are needed.
Also most importantly keep your fingers outside the enclosure, if they bite they tend to hold on for a while.
