Heterometrus from the humid regions (laoticus, petersii, spinifer, longimanus) do very well in communal setups
In my experience, they grow faster...
There is a good chance
The legs are lighter colour, which is only seen in the dryer species H.fulvipes H.madraspatensis, H.xanthopus

Nice pics Gala,
I just as of today am back in the swam business too! I sold 5 swams to a contact in Switzerland in 2006, and just bought babies...
I've heard of some reactions to Nebo venom
I tend to double box Androctonus sp. 'just in case' one will manage to escape its box, or something makes my shelves fall over, etc
iirc A.mauretanicus had the lowst LD50 (amount of venom needed to kill 50% of a group of mice)
That study is at least 10 years old now though
Babycurus are always a good starter buthid
really doesn't look like a Hottentotta
Example H.minusalta here (very similar to H.saulyci)
They are not very fat, dont worry - they can get a lot more 'inflated'
Some Buthus or Buthacus and A.australis?
Likely a Hottentotta species
They are all very similar with colour variations! Nasty venom also ;)
Looks like he has his claws caught
stop opening the box to have a look, you might be lowering the humidity and hurting his chances!
Adult female Androctonus mauretanicus:
Adult male Androctonus crassicauda:
Instar 5 Chaerilus variegatus (that's my pinky finger!)...
Time to get a UV light :P
These guys are super aggressive even on a good day :D
Hey, congrats on the scorpion!
This genus can be quite sedentary, and stay in their hides all day, keep them HOT (35 degrees Celsius)...
the babies will cannibalise
the adults I've put together end up fighting (all females), so i'd guess its best not to keep them in a communal setup...
the needle itself will regenerate each moult
if the scorp is adult, it will no longer moult, so no regeneration!
Heterometrus mothers will very rarely eat their young - only if they are very stressed and in a communal (adult) setup in my experience
they will stay white/whitebrown until 3rd instar pretty much#
you can remove them if theyre walking around, be gentle
>> they will grow...
Hmm, was it worm shaped? the 'guts' you mentioned
could have been a nematode as you say the body was "empty", but would be hard for a Juvenile to...
