Whip Scorpions (Damon diadema) originate from Kenya and Tanzania where they can be found living in caves, under logs and in rock crevices. This species is extremely unusual looking and can make an interesting addition to anyone’s collection. They may be kept in groups of females and one male.
Despite their name they are actually a species of arachnid. They have a flat body with long legs and have two long feelers which are used to help find their way in the dark. They also have two pincher like arms that are used for catching food.
A set up for this species should use coco fiber or peat substrate and include rocks or bark for hides. You should mist the enclosure daily for moisture and humidity.
Whip scorpions will eat appropriately sized crickets or locusts.
