Whip Scorpion in Dominican Amber

If this does not catch your eye, nothing will.  You may recognize this as a tailless whip scorpion.  The whip scorpion is one of the rarest of all finds. Tail-less whip scorpions or amblypigids are very efficient predators. They remain hidden under leaves, bark and other debris for most of the day. They come out at night to feed. Their chelicerae are modified into strong, spine-armored grasping organs that the hapless arthropods would find nearly inescapable. Their front pair of legs, in contrast, are long and slender, obviously modified for sensory functions. Lacking any type of tail appendage, these formidable creatures are not frequently encountered. The females carry their eggs in a sac attached to the undersurface of the abdomen by a few silken threads.

Now here is the kicker on this,  we paid a good price on this and now offer the equivalent good price to you.  By the way, we do understand that this is not a spider........

Also, there is a single true midge, Diptera, Chironomidae, and an immature planthopper.

Item 20

Spider in Dominican Amber

Sometimes the  statement of large does not do justice to the word.  This is one of those times - this is large.  The anterior portion of the spider is gone, but you would never know it looking at this.  It is one gigantic animal.  If you made this into a pendant, everyone could see the spider, easily.  Just a good piece, with great detail.  This has a primitive fly, Nematocera in it.

Item 23

Spider in Dominican Amber

There is a lot here. Almost like a zoo. There is a small male spider that looks like it is chasing a fly, Diptera, Brachycera. Also, a thrip, Thysanoptera, a punky, Ceratopogonidae, 1 large planthopper with wings spread, 2 true midges, Chironomidae, an unusual female worker ant, an immature planthopper and a fungus gnat, Diptera, Mycetophilidae (I think). I suspect there is more, but I give up.

Item 24

Spider in Dominican Amber

There is something about spider webs that I find exciting.  This huge piece of amber has a long of spiders webs inside.  Ever wondered how animals get stuck in spider webs, look though these pictures and you will see the sticky goo on the webs.  The is a winged termite, Isoptera, some wasps,  in fact one with a very strange abdomen, it looks bloated - but the spider webs are cool (of course the spider is here also.)  Finally there is a very small immature planthopper.  Did I mention there is a larval case of a timeid moth?  This type of larvae is often found on damp basement and garage walls, moving very slowly.  Very rare in amber.
