My second mature Peruphasma Schultei!
The pics are a bit rubbishy because she would'nt stay still and they are surprisingly rapid!






My first mature one didn't come out so well :(
Poor thing can hardly even walk never mind climb, she'll live out her days alone in a small petpal in a big pile of privet. This reduces my group to 1.6 but at least the male will be less likely to die young of exhaustion!

another female and the male mature last night :)

Took some pics of the male, he was a grumpy little sod and didn't require much persuasion to put his wings up (or spray me!)

These are awesome. What do they spray you with? Does it smell?

The spray is milky horrible liquid, and as dessicata_uk said, its very unpleasent! It absolutely STINKS. AND they can aim it!!
MOST won't spray unless you annoy them. Although some will spray just for the sake of it.

Heres my set up, lil different, im feeding my on honeysuckle
Oooh your set up is really nice, I might try vermiculite for substrate... although how is it for cleaning out? I never bothered with a substrate because the water tray for the oasis kept spilling over and so needs cleaned out frequently.

I am loving both of those set ups. Gonna have to play with mine!! This might be a stupid question but has anyone tried growing live plants for them inside the set up?

Nope... not sure how well it would work, the oasis keeps the leaves alive for ages, but they've always finished eating all the grown leaves before the baby leaves get a chance to grow and replace them!
It would definitely be good if you could do it, mine need new leaves every few days.
