This gorgeous girl also arrived today. An Opistophthalmus glabrifrons.
Awesome pickup bro! The scorp is beautiful.
Aye aye meat pie. They're stunning scorpions.
Nom nom nom.
Great species! The stridulating is pretty loud on some of them. Congrats on the new arrival!
Nice, great pictures!
I got a tiny one earlier.
Thank you very much.
Amazing pictures and pretty little girl!
Are these rascals the same as tarantulas and pedes? Leave them alone if they burrow? My lass hasn't appeared since she's dug a burrow. The entrance is blocked up.
She should be fine. Even with the opening sealed off she can dig back out when or if she wants. Just like a tarantula, keep an eye out for uneaten feeders though.
She looks like a caramel P. imperator. Much want.
Well I decided to open the entrance and put a cricket in. From the back I can see her. She instantly grabbed, stung and began eating it. So she most certainly was hungry but wouldn't come out.
She's since blocked the entrance back up. I'll leave her for 3-4 weeks and if she hasn't come out again I'll do the same.
Decided to try her again.
Pretty spacious burrow she has, no wonder she doesn't want to come out, looks pretty cozy
I'm really hoping she starts to wander out at night. Just so I know she's definitely NOT in premoult.
If I'm remembering correctly, they are the scorpion version of a pet hole. I'm not as informed on Opistophthalmus as I'd like to be. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable can offer more. At least yours has built her little cave where you can look in though. She definitely looks pretty good size wise.
