    Where do you think you came from?? That's what females produce, including humans. Then the male (except in Parthenogenetic species) comes along and fertilizes it. Then here comes Joey.

    Which leads to my bigger point:

    Which came first? Joey or the egg? :razz:

    I remember reading an interesting topic on VL last time
    They are discussing about why their hottentotta hottentotta are abandoning their brood (Infertile eggs) and they came out with a theory that the female sensed pheromone from another male that are being kept very near to her enclosure and so she abandon them and wanted to mate with the male instead
    But i'm not saying this theory is right, i will try to look for the topic and post it here :D

    *Editted: Nvm, i cant find the topic and think that this is not right because my hottentotta was housed beside a male jacksoni and she pop-ed just fine*

    Anw the whole male hottentotta popping have been discussed in this thread before, might shed some light for this debate here

    I'll give that a read. As for pheromones, I'm not sure, I have an H. Judaicus, but I really have no idea of sex or age on it. It has never molted in my care, I've had it for 2 years now, and I didn't think it was full grown when I got it, but oh well.

    I was under the impression that I just got a female that isn't quite breedable, which is a bit of a shame but oh well. Once I start blasting with the heat lamp again (its been a hot hot summer here, no way I can have it on in my room), maybe she'll do better. Otherwise, shes kept well.

    Wish I had a larger selection of H's around here, they are neat lil scorpions.

    Sorry to dig out this old post, just wondering is a hide essential for this species (as I see a few of your cup with no hides)?

    Hi guys! Just wanted to clarify something after 8+ years, has anyone found the answer about the reproduction of this sp? Are the males really "Parthenogentic"?
