    Hallo friends, pls, could you help me with sexing Opistophthalmus glabrifrons? I can not find details, only that male has longer and thicker tail and prolonged pedipalp hand. But, I have two and they seems to be the same. Can you say whether they are male/female?

    I believe mine is a female so look at her pics and then you should be able to work it out.

    New pet. A little baby scorpion. Chaerilus sp celebes. Once he/she has settled in I'll get some better pics.


    And by little I mean tiny.

    I've had scorpions for about 9 years now and just noticed that they have more eyes on the front! I thought all they had was the 2 on top. Thanks so much for these high res closeups, they are amazing.

    It's amazing what macro shots show up isn't it?

    This beautiful lass has been buried for 6 months. Buried as in hasn't been up to the surface to feed or drink. I decided to find her today, well I expected to find bits of her if I'm honest. But as I was gently removing the substrate I heard a hiss!!!!!!! So bloody happy. I set her enclosure back up and put her back. She soon took the cricket I gave her.

    Tried to get some pics of this little rascal in his/her new clothes. You can see just how little in pics 3 and 4. Tiny.

    I know Clubber Lang is a vinegaroon but it was just easier to put her in this video.

    Gorgeous colored scorpions! Too bad they're consummate borrowers, I would love to enjoy their nocturnal activities as someone said they have nice caramel colors. I want one.

    Aye. Stunners but they make king baboons look social.
