Chimaira Basics - Vampire Crabs

Softcover, 94 pages, more than 110 colour photos and one map. It was in 2006 when a few resourceful wholesalers started offering to an increasing extent amphibian terrestrial crabs that united in them all traits of an interesting and easily kept terrarium animal. They were small, colourful, and keeping them according to their biological needs was not particularly demanding. They proved quite compatible amongst each other and even easy to propagate. Moreover, the crabs were, and still are, priced at a level that made acquiring a small group of these attractive animals readily affordable to the terrarium keeper who was interested in trying something new. With their reproduction being almost strictly water-bound and most species of the genusGeosesarmaaffording their offspring fascinating maternal care, these little crabs soon became favourites amongst terrarium keepers and ever more widely known as vampire crabs. It took only a short while for these animals to become firmly established in both the terrarium animal trade and terrarium keeper circles. Increasing demand also motivated suppliers to try and source more species or colour variants in the countries of origin so that the range of species and variants soon expanded to fifteen. Only a few of these have established themselves firmly in the market and amongst keepers so far, however. If you like nicely decorated rainforest terraria with a small aquatic section and maybe even a decorative stream or waterfall that you want to populate with small yet conspicuously colourful invertebrates, the genus Geosesarma might very well turn out to be a perfect choice.

Chimaira Tarantulas - Breeding Experience

Frankfurt am Main, October 2015, hardcover, 220 pages, 270 colour photos. In this new tarantula book the three French authors summarize their travelling experience (journeys to Africa, South America and Asia) where they have carefully observed tarantulas in their natural habitats. The knowledge gained from these explorations is implemented in their keeping and breeding concept by considering habitat structure and climate variation. Clton et al. clearly recommend captive-bred spiders for would-be keepers and point out the risks for wild populations. A tarantula bite accident is included as a case report. This book not only provides information on how to set up a terrarium for ground-dwellling or aboreal species, problems with parasites and possible treatment are also discussed. The species accounts include some undescribed forms of tarantulas which have been bred over the past few years and are available for the hobbyists.

Chimaira Giant Beetles Professional Breeders Series

Frankfurt/M. 2013, HC, 159 pages, 192 color photos , 64 col. drawings & 47 distribution maps.

Giant Beetles The name thrills if you come face to face with a male Hercules beetle of up to 18 cm long that is reminiscent of a gladiator with horns and body armour. The name befits the fist-sized elephant beetles just as well, and they will impress the observer just as much. In his guide book, Alexander Weigelt shares with everybody with an interest in beetles his years of experience with the genera Dynastes, Megasoma and Golofa from the southern regions of the USA and Central and South America, and provides a practically minded introduction to the breeding and keeping of these giants in the realm of the insects. Comprising approximately 350,000 species, beetles are by far the largest group amongst the insects. Their order is in fact so vast that about every third animal species on this planet is a beetle.
