vfox Posted September 8, 2011 Share Posted September 8, 2011 I've been thinking about keeping local native harvestmen (Opiliones), not the cellar spiders but the single bodied thread legged forest dwellers. I have been noticing recently that they are rather varied around my area, I know of at least four different looking (and I assume different species) versions wandering around in the damp underbrush. So far I've collected three different ones from my front porch alone , two long legged and one short(comparatively) legged species. I placed them in my Parcoblatta enclosure...except one that I placed in my emperor scorpion container. I thought the scorpion killed it because it was "gone" for several days. Last night I fed my emp a male dubia and about an hour later the harvestmen spider was standing on the scorpion sharing the meal, lol. That kinda sold me on them, they are amusing to watch and completely venomless, they eat just like my old Damon variegatus...except more as a scavenger...and omnivorous...lol. So do any of you guys keep them? What's your experience with them? Do you know what species, local or exotic? I'll try and get some pics up at some point.
