    im tring to get morphs and that will do it for me...i only like the ones i breed so im particular to AA's & AM's{D
     
  5. Ok, when a scorpion is born it is considered to be 1st instar. When it molts it will be 2nd instar and so on. Make sense?:)

    Yup. Do they molt forever, or just until they stop growing?

    AA 12cms, AA (hector)10-11 cms, AA (libycus)9-11 cms, AB 8-9 cms, AB (aeneas)7-9cms,AC's 6-8 cms AM 7-9 cms but usally gets to the 9 cm....everything in the () is a morph hope that helps Raul ow by the way AB's imo seem to be on the smaller size though in the chart i have them before the AM's i cant explain it usally from what i have seen this is the case..though im sure some have different experiances

    It sure did Wayne. Thanks
    .... I alwayz wanted to get some Ab (My favorite scorpions) but recently i don't know where i read that Am where bigger so i change my mind, now i guess i'm back to Ab i;m sure i'll be able to get some before september ends.Need to save some greens $$

    AM's tend to be bigger...the problem is that it all depends on the location they come from....i have had fully adult AM's reach a larger size then my AB's though lets say for instance chris'es AB's from krazy 8's tend to be larger then some normal AM"s...there really doesnt seem to be a norm..which to me can really get frustrating when doing size comparisons and future mating!!!soo best of luck either way i personally like AM's better but you cant go wrong from any of the darker species of this genus
