    This species heavily shows for many months. One good sign for the female being a few weeks away, is that the embryos are clearly pressed uncomfortably against her membrane. Not just a small yellow embryo, but something very pronounced. She then went to the cool end of her tank and hid under the same cork my liosoma gave birth under, and covered both ends completely.

    A few days later, I checked on her to found 50+ crawling about

    According to Wikipedia (which is not the best source but I'm terrible at finding info) Parabuthus schlecteri is one of the largest buthids in the world. And as it is Parabuthus and a buthid, the venom will be rather potent (pretty high). I know they can be found in Namibia but that's all I remember. Maybe in some of the countries surrounding Namibia too.
