    Homalonychus theologus CBCB slings

    Juvenile homalonychus remain in a 'créche' for quite some time- at least 2 years. ive seen much older slings around i5 still hanging together in clusters in the wild- i'll suddenly see a bunch of eyeshine around a rodent burrow and it'll be 20 of these guys

    This behavior is only possible with very fine sand. They will not attempt this with coarser grains

  8. Homalonychus theolgus

    Homalonychus theolgus

    Theologian sand-spider mature female. Similar in behavior to the famous (and dangerous) genus Sicarius, they like to hide in fine sand to camouflage themselves. They have an interesting courtship behavior in which the male covers the female in a 'bridal veil'
