My son has just ordered one and I wondered if anyone had any experience of them. It's all well and good reading about them on the web but experience is always best
Yes, it's coming from TSS.I noticed spidershop have velvetworms for sale. I'm guessing thats where he's getting them from? I'm sure I saw a velvet worm on Brave wilderness and he said they were rare in the wild so I don't think too much is know about them.
Yes, I've not seen it do that yet. I'm just pleased my son hasn't taken it upstairs yet as it gives me chance to watch it.They are pretty amazing, I watched a few videos on them when you first mentioned your son was getting one. They shoot sticky stuff that looks like crazy string.
Have you seen it shoot out its sploochy mouth slime stuff to catch prey yet?They are certainly oddities that have survived 520 million years.
No I haven't seen it shoot it out yet, love that word sploochyHave you seen it shoot out its sploochy mouth slime stuff to catch prey yet?
Everything about them is just so biologically different than any other species I can think of. I've never seen these for sale here. I wonder if we have them here or if they are legal or not. I'd love to try one out and see what they are like.
That looks as though someone has made it out of a piece of material and not stuffed it properlyView attachment 33334 I agree, they were dropped off along with the tartigrades!
These look cool too but you'd need a microscope to watch them. I have thought that if I get a digital microscope and camera I might search for these, they live in water that sits on moss and are about 1mm long. I watched a documentary on a guy who made it his (later) lives work to study them. They have proven that they can survive in space and could have come on/in a meteor.
