    Lychas Tricarinatus Care

    What I found is that they're very fiesty and hungry little things. My entire first brood died off The next three broods seem to be doing better. My females all seem to prefer to hide under bark, rather than hang on it interestingly enough

    I need a light colored substrate

    I don't know how lethal UV is to scorpions but you need to understand, OP, that scorpions are nocturnal predators and are prey to other animals, so being out in the open and being able to be "seen" is not what they want to do be doing. They don't make good pets for that reason. Some spiders...

    Is my scorpion about to molt or is it just fat

    It looks like it. I'd bump the heat up slightly and increase the humidity

    Any tiny forest scorpions in the hobby?

    I wanna echo all the scorpions mentioned in this thread. All of them are fairly easy to care for. I own magacascarensis, gervasii, and australisae myself Big trick with them is keeping them from dryin out.

    T. Stigimurus

    I'm not sure the exact instar, 6 or 7. They molt so quickly and I have so many, I have no clue.

    I'm officially a grandma!

    Very cool! Try raising the heat/moisture to help them molt. I tend to get smaller broods/more stressed out mothers when they give birth in captivity. Usually I separate gravid looking females a few weeks before I think they will give birth. But sometimes you miss some smaller mothers who give...

    AFS angry with water.

    I wouldnt worry about making the AFS "Angry" or anything, unless its already incredibly stressed. Give it some stimulation ;) In any case, when mine do this, i give them a short spritz to the mouthparts so they'll drink. always good to be sure they're doing that.

    Liocheles australasiae 's temperament?

    I've had 0 losses from all my broods. If i lose them, its due to poor conditions. theyre incredibly hardy.
