    Nice feeding! Here's one of my Hesperus' finishing up on a Bark Scorpion. The strange thing is, she continued to eat the scorpion for nearly two days, which is quite odd. Maybe it was very tasty?

    Why not feed it actual feeders?

    feeder insects aren't as easy to get here (the place crickets like are very far away from me) plus this scorpion was very easy to catch compared to other feeders and invaded my property so it was fair game to become widow food. And they're ridiculously common too.

    If you post a photo of the Palp, it can be sexed. Is it a mexicanus variant? I think it may be a female.

    You sent me one of these too didn't you? I'm still trying to get it in a decent position to take pictures.

    Just a thought, it would be a fun thread to show pics of the common habitats the various Latros are found in. Hesperus would easily qualify as a toilet (outhouse) or water meter spider.
