Question for the #fursuit builders out there — how would you articulate the pedipalps of a peacock spider? I explain the problem a little more in this post: https://glowingskull.tumblr.com/post/175664173748/regarding-jaws
The more I think about ithis, the more I think that the -rod attachments would need to be at the top of the #pedipalp, and the bottom would be attached flexibly but with no link.
The Bowden cable would adjust the position of the 'palp towards or away from the centerline of the head. TO separate the jaws, pull the cable, which is natural if holding a sandwich or drink.
