Is this Desert Hairy a male or female?
I always wanted a Babycurus soecies, how often do you spray it/water the sub where you live? My only concern with them would be humidity...
Nebo hierichonticus (simon, 1872) - Israel
That was the only down side to these beautiful scorps. I sprayed every two days to keep the humidity up. And when the humidity went down and I sprayed, like in the picture, one of them would come out and drink. Perhaps with a thicker layer of substrate You could spray more seldom. I had approx 1,5 inches of humus. If You can get one, or like I had, a pair, don´t hesitate. Very nice scorps. I sold them to make room for the Jacksonis, but now I really miss the Gigas. Highly recommended. Kind of nice to me, could have tagged me a couple of times, but never even threatened to do so. Nice and beautiful. Think I will get another pair in the future.
some update pics of my scorps!
Androctonus mauretanicus adult female, huge metasoma!
Hottentotta minusalta adult female
Androctonus crassicauda subadult, waiting for me to drop food in
Heterometrus bengalensis babies, interesting some are I2 while others have moulted to I4
Opistacanthus madagascariensis (possible mis-ID), pair
Nebo hierichronticus adult female, freshly moulted
Androctonus mauretanicus juvenile protecting itself with metasoma
Liocheles australasiae (Kalaman), really weird species this!
Female Urodacus novaehollandiae, Australia.
My first scorpion, a C. vittatus I found hanging on the underside of a rock. She's gorgeous in my opinion and quite calm. I'll be rehousing her into something bigger soon so that chunk of cork bark can go more vertical.
Pandinus cavimanus "Red Claw"- this is the only scorpion I own. I caught it during it's molt and took a few pics, hoping it would help in sexing it. I'm not too familiar with scorpions and would like to know if anyone would try to sex it for me. Any input or information about it would also be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Could still be subadult, which means its hard to sex
usually P.cavimanus males have an indent in the claws, suggesting this is a female
However the pectines/operculum dont match with whats shown here: http://www.allscorpionarchives.com/t39-sexing-pandinus-spp-and-heterometrus-spp
also.. you shouldn't be handling the scorpion after a moult, its very delicate and risks severe injury
My usual scorps again
A.crassicauda adult male, these are huge -_-
H.minusalta stilting female
I'd say male. Looks like mine. I was told it was a female when I bought it, but I'm pretty sure it's a male.
Thanks so much! I appreciate your response. That pic helps! Yeah they look exactly the same.
