    So I was finally able to get a couple of clear pics of my of my Chilean Dwarf Scorpion (Cocoa Bean). She's about an an inch and a half from tip to tip, and she spends pretty much all of her time sealed in her burrow. Does she look gravid? She refuses food, but I've only had her for a week and a half, so I'm not too worried.

    They spend a lot of time in their burrows. Quite normal for them.

    I figured, especially since you told me on my last post. Just thought I'd see if anyone could tell if she was gravid, now that I have better pictures. :happy:

    I would say she is Gravid also her membrane is filled out nicely and her coloration still looks shiny and vivid
    If she was premolt - her colors would be dull and dark
    Best of luck getting her to birth I haven't heard of anyone having broods from any species from this genus

    Please do :)
    I had a Gravid B keyserlingi a few years ago but she never birthed for me ... Only stung me right before she died
    the memory of being stung was great but a brood woulda been better :hilarious: hope you have better results than I did
     
  8. Yours looks like mine... Fat, bloated and shiny. Ill get a pic when I get home! Neat species, the shinier sp in my collection! Would be cool if they really are gravid.
