    Congrats on the little ones!
    The Parabuthus genus has some really amazing scorpions.

    Thanks all! Sadly it's an insanely small brood. It's mostly due to her not being in a breeder setup for some months while she was gravid.

  8. Well hopefully all goes good with them, but I'm pretty sure with your husbandry skills that's a definite anyway

    I'm going to sneak over to his house and find out wth he has been feeding them. Spanish fly mixed with mole blood no doubt. Lol!
    About 1/2 of the scorpion species I have are from Dustin. Always great to deal with and only 2 miles away.

    Hi, When you say 'breeder setup' do you mean a setup with higher temperatures, or is there more to the setup?

    Kinda yea! I mean a tank to herself and taken care of as if I knew she was gravid. She was in with my main colony which didnt have a heat lamp.

    Right now I do! They're great together as adults. However, once you suspect a female is gravid, best practice is to remove her to her own brooding tank lol

    Very interesting! I never knew they could be kept communal as adults. I will definitely have to give this a try.
