    Hi, is parabuthus transvaalicus really bigger than other parabuthus sp? My ptrans is way bigger than my oranje male and femala.
     
  2. Yeah it should be one of the biggest besides Parabuthus schlecteri and Parabuthus villosus (according to wikipedia lol)

    I wonder why my Parabuthus villosus is small
     
  4. Is it an adult? I think males in most scorpions are smaller than the females also. Maybe P.trans is the biggest Parabuthus species :D I don't know that lol

    Who uses Wikipedia? Rofl!!
    I do use Allscorpionarchives, ocassionally, an excellent source of info from actual owners/breeders. Or I'll text/call gromgrom (Dustin) and rattle his memory cells. Lol!
    I only have P. maximus, which won't get large compared to transvaalicus. I'm just now getting into the "hotter" species, so size isn't a big factor for me.

  7. I use wikipedia cause it is quick. At times it does help but it is also unreliable at other times which is why I pointed out that I used Wikipedia:D

    Some of the pics I've seen of P. trans are crazy. Pretty sure you've seen them as well. Literally the size of a man's palm, huge!
