Advertisement There has been a lot of reports from hobbyists in the Philippines that the most common Heterometrus species in the local trade is parthenogenetic (Google search: longimanus parthenogenetic, Result: 1,850 in 0.44seconds) And the Heterometrus article in wikipedia cited two journal as reference on the line "Some specie[sic] are parthenogenic". Curious, I started this small project to document the life cycle of Heterometrus cf. longimanus "Palawan". So I purchased 10pcs of Palawan longimanus from a local breeder approximate birth date of June 20, 2015, he is not sure of the locality but claimed that the specimen is parthenogenetic since the parent specimen continually produces offsprings for every few months even though it is isolated. Which, most local keepers claim as well. I have been to Palawan due to work and although I have never found any specimen, it is a common tale of the locals that they can see a lot of specimen crossing the road during rainy season. Burrows are known to extend beyond reach and large number of individuals are commonly found together under the same rock or log. Here's the item list for the temporary enclosures 5pcs microwave-safe container (around 3L volume) - $4.38 4kg brown sand - $1.99 1bag cocopeat - $0.44 5kg potting soil - $1.11 Total - $7.92 or Php360 1 part potting soil 1 part cocopeat 1 part sand mixed with a screw driver and you will have something like this. I left one unmixed just to see what will they do with it. Dimensions Average weight divided by 10, yet to get a gram scale though, so I guess I should get one before their next molt so each is approximately 0.17g Four containers has 1 each while the unmixed one has 6 in it. Will go look for some flat rocks or barks for them to hide on Room temperature: 25-30 degrees Celcius Container temperature: unmeasured Room humidity: unmeasured Container humidity: unmeasued Room airflow: Very good Container airflow: Very bad / Absent, unless when opened every other day.
