if its moulting
1. dont touch it or touch the enclosure
2. make sure humidity is high
3. leave it alone to moult!
in my experience, Euscorpius species don't do well in communal setups, keep them separately!
that scorp is well fed, it is perhaps just not hungry
Leave a wet corner with a dead cricket or piece of cucumber/vegetable in it, the mites will all aggregate onto it, and then you can dispose of it...
IMO, a simple setup is best, so that you can see the scorpion without opening the lid (UV light at least)
crush the head and pile the cockroackes/crickets in a corner of the enclosure, the babies will eat them
More likely H.petersii Kelsey :)
Forgot how massive the petersii/laoticus claws were
Heterometrus from the humid regions (laoticus, petersii, spinifer, longimanus) do very well in communal setups
In my experience, they grow faster...
There is a good chance
The legs are lighter colour, which is only seen in the dryer species H.fulvipes H.madraspatensis, H.xanthopus

Nice pics Gala,
I just as of today am back in the swam business too! I sold 5 swams to a contact in Switzerland in 2006, and just bought babies...
I've heard of some reactions to Nebo venom
I tend to double box Androctonus sp. 'just in case' one will manage to escape its box, or something makes my shelves fall over, etc
iirc A.mauretanicus had the lowst LD50 (amount of venom needed to kill 50% of a group of mice)
That study is at least 10 years old now though
Babycurus are always a good starter buthid
really doesn't look like a Hottentotta
Example H.minusalta here (very similar to H.saulyci)
They are not very fat, dont worry - they can get a lot more 'inflated'
Some Buthus or Buthacus and A.australis?
Likely a Hottentotta species
They are all very similar with colour variations! Nasty venom also ;)
Looks like he has his claws caught
stop opening the box to have a look, you might be lowering the humidity and hurting his chances!
Adult female Androctonus mauretanicus:
Adult male Androctonus crassicauda:
Instar 5 Chaerilus variegatus (that's my pinky finger!)...
Time to get a UV light :P
