has anyone been able to get a few yet?
nope still working on it
well, after telling hornet that I thought they must hibernate, and all but giving up any hope of finding some at this time of year, I found a small colony of Velvet worms last thursday (sorry i havent posted back earlier, been a shocker of a last few days..)
so I have proven that they are still findable, however they were alot deeper in the log than usual, and very very lethargic until my body heat warmed them.
So, I now have enough to send to you Bryony, and will go back and dig deeper in the same log for you Hornet and see how I go.
now...how do I get them to you? when I find them, they are normally buried in rotted log to the point where you would think it impossible for them to move, so if i pack their containers with the log they come from, they will be well cushioned and safe. so will I have to send them with AAE? I have never done anything like this before so excuse my ignorance....
prob just post in the mail? would be easiest.
Yea like roaches i rekon you could just post them.
thats what i thought, but wasnt sure if you could do that. Thanks for that.
slow down, im not sure if u can do that. but people post spiders and scorps so i think u could
Huh...? it was you that said post them, then i say thanks, not even saying 'yes i will go shove them in the post box now'
what is the slow down for.....
next time i won't say thanks at all..
Make sure you send them express post
yup express post, for velvet worms use a small plastic tub, and fill with moist spagnum moss and them add the velvet worms. Put in in a post box and pack around it with newspaper then send express post. Let me know when you get more.
Let me know too please, I may be able to take Bryony's up to her in Sydney when I next head up there.
can u find a few for me to please??
darkangel, they need to be kept cool, around 20-25c winecoolers are good
it's usually about that inside my house (gotta love air con! lol) would they be ok in just a tank in the room or should i still get something to keep them cooler? also are they found in brissy anywhere?
i dont think they are in the brisbane area, i'll try and get you a pic of a setup
ok cool. thank you!
thats as good as i can do, babies are very small, need it cool moist with plenty of hiding spots, mould will kill them.
what are they in?
thats coco peat as a substrate, little pieces of wood and a type of moss
They should be. It's just a question of finding them.
