@ArachnoDrew ....... @gromgrom also kept P transvaalicus with a P liosoma before but not sure how long they stayed that way
I know from seeing crates of scorpions being opened many years ago .... there were androctonus australis , hottentotta trilineatus + parabuthus transvaalicus all in the...
Congrats Tom !
You can keep them communally or housed alone ( alone is the best option to keep as many as possible alive ) I've only ever seen 2 become cannibalized by siblings but 2 is 2 many if it can be avoided
you know how to care for them already so i won't offer any advice there lol
C sculpts usually eat within a few days of being separated from mama if they are hardened up enough
I made a rhyme that makes it simple to remember when to take them and put them in their own tanks
If they glow .... they're ready to go
Use a UV light and see if they glow as much as mama...
@ArachnoDrew yep atleast half my leiurus molt upside down while the other half seems to do it Right side up on the substrate
My Heteroctonus junceus are odd since its 50/50 with half using vertical bark to molt while the other half molt right on the substrate
There's never a set standard...
Honestly it all depends on how long she ate before birthing will determine if I feed my females while they have babies on her back but I really try not to feed her until ive removed all the babies
Although sometimes I feed the momma if she's being a nasty witch towards me when retrieving her...
Yeah i got stung on the tip of my left pinky finger and it still feels like a hot needle is stuck in it almost 2 years later
If I bump it lightly - it's extremely painful
Constant reminder of my own stupidity and I'll never let it happen again
Picking up LQ's by the tail is probably the least likely way to get stung and they usually go kinda limp on ya when you pick them up
They don't have really strong tails as compared to androctonus or parabuthus which can literally spin their tail and still sting you while holding them
Quite a few of my stings are in the old sting reports but the LQ sting happened after the format changed on here so i never posted a sting report of it
I didn't get treatment for the sting because there's really not much that can be done for it as far as I know
it was a 4th instar LQ that...
Just be thankful it was a very mild scorpion that got you and not the 10+ that ive been stung by over the years leiurus quinquestriatus is NOT a good 1 to be stung by .... my pinky finger reminds me every day for 2 years now
Also I don't believe the sting reports work anymore...
Yep I've used plexiglass or plastic wrap can be used to cover 80% of the screen on top which should help keep it moist alot easier
That's odd you found the sperm in the water dish tho lol might want to put the water bowl in a corner so the male can place it on a better spot for conception...
