Not sure if its male or female yet, but here are a couple quick pics I took while cleaning...Enjoy everyone...



These are the really small hides too by the way...so you can imagine the size in person...


(Looks female to me)

She's looking great Ken! Do you find their characters much different from amyae?

I think they are cooler then the amyae personally...and they bite harder too!

01-21-2006, 04:33 PM
She's awesome! Fingers crossed she doesn't grow any bulges ;0)

Mr Crankypants bit me the other day when I picked him up! Didn't hurt at all! He let go as he obviously realised it wasn't having the desired effect.

I really wish we had those guys here is captivity. I can dream...

I know this is probably gonna sould stupid Ken, but is that their normal color? I don't know anything about these guys, I was just curious. Itsa great looking animal, I'll keep my fingers cross that its a girl.

Some what normal...she(I think/hope) is lacking the band if you don't know much about them. They range from colors, I have seen pink/orange/white/light pink/peach/brown...if anyone knows of other colors, please post them ;-)

what are these guys like to keep? their setups look pretty simple.

I keep mine simple, I tried keeping them very natualistic when I first got them, but then went to they way they look in the pics. The roaches can't hide anymore, well...to much, and clean up is very easy.

I just spray water once a week on them, and feed them every 2 days. Very simple to keep, and they are a joy to work with!

Keep the questions coming ;-)

I am soooooooo envious. Wish we could get Wheeleri here, and the strangest thing is, is that its a native species........LOL

01-21-2006, 11:17 PM

I have the same feeling, with good ol' Derek would come on...

Or any others could comment...due to me not knowing to much on sexing the wheeleri ;-)
