    I made another thread here called "my Androctonus collection" about half a year ago, but as I couldn't edit the title of it now, I thought the best would be to make a new thread.

    Thought I could share some old and new pictures from my scorpion collection:

    [​IMG]
    Parabuthus transvaalicus, freshly molted to 5th instar.

    [​IMG]
    Same specimen three to four weeks later.

    0.1 Parabuthus sp. This species is either P. schlechteri or P. raudus, hopefully I'll get the ID clear soon.

    Centruroides are the best.
    It is my goal to have kept one specie of all centruroides before I die

    Thanks a lot all.
    Alexi: In this post, P. means Parabuthus. But there are other genuses that starts with the letter P, so it can be an abbreviation of other genus names too.

    I put the full genus name, Parabuthus, under the first picture, and then followed with the abbreviation until I came to a new genus. This is not the correct way to do it, but hopefully people understand it:)
