    Okay, My "female" has arrived and she is TWICE as small as my "MALE". Is this correct???? Cant be!!! Is it possible I had a female all this time and ordered another one??? NOOOOO Can two females live together????? I am pissed and confused!

    femal A. Bicolor?
    I wouldn't put 2 females together if i where u. 2 woman just don't mix:)
    twice as small is a big difference. is it full grown allready. maybe it is an entirely different species.

    It was suppost to be thier "largest female". If this is the largest adult female, them mine must be on steroids! Im still going to see how they react towards each other and then make a nice thick divider.

    nice photos. its indeed a big difference. check out the first tail segment. if one of them has 3 lines of rubbles (or whatever you call them) running through and the other once 2 (middle is missing) than you have 2 different species.

    thier tails both look the same. I put in a divider made out of a cereal box HAHA and the new one is going crazy running around. I guess im gonna have to keep them separate. This really sucks. I expected a huge female and got a squirt. This ones pedipals and very long and slender compared to the large one. But its just so small. I somehow have this feeling one of them is going to get under the divider by digging.........

    there is variation in sizes among adults,
    maybe a HUGE male and a TICHY female you have!?


    from that pic, it looks like the female is the male, and the male the female? :(

    or maybe an AA is a totally yellow(ish) AB!

    youll find A.crassicauda and A.mauretanicus are also "black "versions" of AA" in terms of general looks

    theyr wicked! everytime a pic is posted i want one even more

    The chela do appear to be razor-thin = female. Perhaps still a subadult? Females don't exhibit a huge change at maturity, so it could be hard to tell.

    So you think its possible that I have an adult male and sub-adult female? Is there the slightest possibility they can live together without killing each other? I have em separated but would really like to keep em together. The little one is more aggressive right now.
     
  14. Hard to tell in this picture but mine is much smaller as well.

    Btw, how are you sure that your first specimen is a male ?

    im pretty sure, ive been trying to sex him since I got him and so far everything points to male. (short pectines, many teeth, slender short pedipalps) Almost everyone agreed its a male.

    This isn't a social species so you'd be taking a risk, but being a male female pair they could feasibly live together, although when she moulted there would be a very high chance she would be eaten as even the most notoriously social species seem to enjoy nothing more then a nice freshly moulted sibling.

    I just ask you that because your specimen seems to be very fat, and all the males bicolor I had (4 so far) were very slim since the last molt and ate almost nothing (they have also quite long pectines)...
    Females 20-27 denticles, males 26-32 denticles.
    Greetings,
    Eric
    (PS. Regarding the sociability, I had couples of Androctonus, but also some females together without problem, on the other hand young (except of course 2nd-3rd instars) are very aggressives and can't be kept together).

    The chela of the "male" on the other thread with pictures seemed rather bulbous = male. You are right that it does seem a bit chubby. BTW, Razzle, males have the longer pectines, not shorter.

    well they havent gotten through the divider yet. Both seem calm. New female is very thin. Have they even been feeding her?? Poor thing looks like she hasent eaten in months.
