Nice exoskeleton, Gopal! Here a couple of mine:
Amblypigid exoskeleton: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/930...
Amblypigid mother: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/929...

Amblypygids are also known as whip spiders and tailless whip scorpions...The name "amblypygid" means "blunt rump", a reference to a lack of the telson ("tail") carried by related species. -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amblypygi
