Mike,

She died and the eggs either dried up or rotted. I now have a small one that was found by a friend. He thought it was dead. I was getting ready to dry mount it and it moved ever so slightly. I placed it in a small pill bottle (the same diameter at the animal) and put 2 drops of water in with it and a small roach. The next morning I opened the bottle and it jumped out and ran up my office wall! :) I now have it back in the pill bottle.

Hello all,
Anyone have a clue what to feed baby New Mexican solifugid? I've no clue what spp, found her next the Rio Grande near Taos, NM in July, she laid 12 eggs a month later then refused to eat. 4 babies hatched and have gone through one molt. I've tried a fruit fly and larger flies (dead or stunned into near death) to no avail. I really don't want them to starve to death but I've got no clue at this point! batomobile@gmail.com, 505-506-0378. I'll just release them if no ideas are forthcoming.

How big are they, and how big was the female? I'm especially interested because I recently moved to Santa Fe and am not yet familliar with the local arachnids!

I'd try temites or springtails. You may be able to find termites by searching under logs, I've seen them under debris in some of the aroyos around here so I'm sure you can find some up there. Springtails are probably there too, but are so tiny they can be difficult to collect. I think some breeders of poison dart frogs breed them though so you be be able to find a source.

Good luck with them, as you've probably read there has not been a whole lot of success with these guys.
