    Just got back from the store to find this fine specimen crawling up the side of my house. Just like old times I caught it. Moved it across the road. If it's a male it's not mature. Could be an actual female. This is kinda unusual this time of year. Normally only mature males are out roming...

    BABY DEATHSTALKERS??!! "Leiurus quinquestriatus"

    Congrats!! Wait for them to leave Mom and then separate into small deli cups. They won't leave Mom until they molt. Feed as much as they will eat. I used to raise ALOT of scorp babies and I promise they will let you know when they are done eating. That is usually before their next month.

    Garter Snake....

    I was hunting small mouth but the spots were biting. Wifey never complains about my fishing but I have to bring her some to eat occasionally. Well, she is fish hungry. Last time I went out it was a tournament and turned them loose. Today it was just for fun so I brought 3 in for her to eat haha

    Ok, try to get them some small cricket in a few days. If they are ready to eat it can be quite entertaining to watch them get ''em haha

    How often do you feed your Scorpions?

    It can take a week or two before they eat. They will let you know when ready. Then they will eat about as much as you want to feed them until they plump up

    Need some info about scorplings

    What species? Ime it can take a week or 2 or so for them to eat. Go with tiny pinhead crickets. I never had any success getting them to eat cricket parts. Believe me, when they get hungry enough they are quite capable of taking down a cricket almost their own size

    Need answers on substrate mix and if I need to bake topsoil/potting soil

    Can you still get Schultz's Peat Moss? Wally world used to sell it and I used it for xeric to tropical spp. Don't have to do anything to it

    Do all scorps molt upside down?

    Mostly just "bark scorpion" molt like that. Burrowing and terrestrial spp molt right side up.

    Any cactus growers here?

    Aphono, we were in Peru in May. My wife is from there. They sell fruit of a large prickly pear in the markets. They call it "tuna". Is that what you are calling Peruvian apple? It is a large fruit slightly smaller than an apple
