A very exciting, or scary, SUY this month! Arachnids! Not only spiders belong to this group, but also ticks and scorpions.
Some think they are scary and have arachnophobia (fear of spiders), others are interested in them and study them (Arachnology).
Or you are in the middle, like me and jump when they move and study them when they are standing still Razz

Lets begin with our 8 legged friends!

WONDERFUL topic cheers
Tonight I will take some pictures too .

It is interesting that spiders, ticks and scorpions are not insects ! Untill I read it on this forum, I have always thought they were  geek

Like you, I like spiders best when thay stand still Laughing
Usually, when I see one indoors, I go to great lengths to get them outdoors without harming them.
The very small ones I move to a potted plant and am sure it keeps them free of unwanted bugs Laughing

Ticks are another matter.
We have zillions of them here, and I kill them whenever I find one on my pets, - or on myself *shudder* !!!! What a Face
I have been treated against boreliat twice *more shudder * pale

Fortunately we don't have scorpions in Denmark...except ones of plastic  Very Happy

Very nice archanids collections, Karin and Susanne. Applause I don't think spiders are scary creatures, but we don't have dangerous spiders in Norway either. When I was a child I was told never to kill a spider, because a spider will bring you luck.
I also had a golden spider pin with coloured stones in my "jewellery" box. I think I still have it.

Spiders also always reminds me of the charming story "Charlotte's Web" about the good friends Wilbur the little pig, the barn spider Charlotte and the little girl. Wink

Congrats Karin, at last your suggestion won the "show us yours" woting! cheers

About the tarantula, I can warrant you that I've never seen anything like htat. I don't know the Japanese ones but I doubt it could be better. The scorpion is also very impressive and detailed, really tempting, exciting, wonderful. I only hope it is not the same species as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] although it won't be hard to decide which one to choose. Very Happy

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Ticks in the genus Ixodes.

I. Australian paralysis tick, Ixodes holocyclus.
One figure, by Paleo-Creatures [figure is a male]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

II. castor bean tick, Ixodes ricinus.
1. 3B Scientific
2. Funrise Toys (World of Nature Insect Collection)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

III. Black-legged tick, Ixodes scapularis.

Two figures, an engorged female and a male by a currently unknown manufacturer.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

IV. miscellanous 'Ixodes' ticks.
1. GPI Anatomicals (Canine Skin Parasites)-this is an otherwise great figure except for the presence of festoons which this genus should not have.
2. Play Visions (Fleas, Lice, and Ticks)-this is marketed as a 'deer tick' which generally implies an Ixodes, but members of this genus should not have eyes, an ornate dorsal shield, nor festoons.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The brown dog tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus:

Two figures, a female + male pair by Merial

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Soft Ticks (family Argasidae).

One figure, by Play Visions (Fleas, Lice, and Ticks). This figure is marked 'chigger' but this is clearly not a chigger (besides, chiggers are only parasitic in the larval stage, which would only have 6 legs). The morphology is generic (and many members of this family look similar), but probably represents Ornithodoros or Carios.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The dust mite, Dermatophagoides farinae.

One figure, and what must be the ONLY figure of a dust mite, by Play Visions (Fleas, Lice, and Ticks). Kind of cartoony but interesting.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The itch mite, Sarcoptes scabiei.

We are fortunate of having Blaine's contribution to this topic. cheers Interesting that not even Blaine owns the katipo spider from Science and Nature or it would be presented here. It is just a painting variation from the redback but surely interesting. Very Happy

I didn't realize S&M made a katipo? If it's available, I'll find one...

It is only available through New Zealand
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
In March, it will be introduced in Australia too and it may turn easier to get through Minizoo. Very Happy

So it looks like it's new and only available to retailers. If so, minizoo and others should have it in 2017. Thanks for the heads-up! I have the Yowies katipo but this one will be nicer.

The top one looks like the Play Visions spitting spider, Scytodes thoracica. Is the bottom one the Bullyland red-kneed tarantula? I just ordered one too, along with the three 2017 Bullyland spiders.

Yes it is Bullyland and the spitting spider. But not marked as PV but very similar, so it is Club Earth

I have replaced the PB images with Postimage images, for spiders, mites, ticks, and pseudoscorpions. At some point I will add some scorpions and whipscorpions.

Papo fattail scorpion. Here is the only figure I've bought locally, this year, for my collection. I shouldn't but I couldn't resist. It is a spectacular figure and recomended to everyone. No excuses if you are not a collector of scorpions. Laughing

Laughing Surely Susanne! It is just impressive! However, I have a favorite among Blaine's figures. I absolutely love the common yellow scorpion from Kaiyodo Souvenirs enthomologics. It looks really real... maybe because I used to play with tsome like these when I was a boy. Maybe more precisely the Spanish scorpion, Blaine owns the Paleocreatures, I believe that is the exact species I could find in the South of Portugal.
I also wonder if any of these Emperor scorpions is lifesized? Blaine? Wink

The closest are probably the two Bullyland figures, especially the re-make ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in the image with the bigger figures). Maybe the Edu Science one for a smaller specimen.

Thanks Blaine for your response. The Bullyland is interesting, it is not as impressive as Papo's fattail but it is a good size according with you and it is also relatively cheap and not hard to find. Who knows, some day, my Papo gets a friend. Very Happy
