    one of my baby scorpions is a mutant ninja 2-tailed scorpion.
    I can't post any picture of it right now because i can't find my camera, but as soon i find it. you will see pictures. it's a C. sculpturatus btw

    and he/she is not for sale. I do have a bunch of normal babies that i need to get rid of, so... just contact me, they will be dirt cheap @ $1 each

    Could that be caused by inbreeding or is it something that just happens sometimes? I've seen it in pictures before but never knew what, if anything, would cause that. Are both tails fully functional?

    I'll be watching for pictures for sure. It'd be interesting to see pictures of him molting as well. Then again molting may be where he comes into some problems. Good luck with your little mutant.

    my understanding (not a geneticist or even a biologist by formal training) is that this is more likely to be a conjoined twins type of thing and not a mutation



    sweet whatever it is :)




    i have some ideas for instilling "mutations" in bugs that i might work on later =P

    yes, both tails are fully functionals. the adult female that gave birth was WC

    You know, i was thinking of the same thing and i didn't want to announce it too early worrying that i might jinx it, but if it doesn't work out, then i'll just let it go as long as i tried my best to help him/her.

    you know, after I did some reading about 2-tailed scorpions, i feel the same way. someone else was about to bring a pair of double tailed C. sculpturatus together, bred them and didn't get any double tailed offspring.
    this leads me to believe that, like human, these are jointed eggs or embryos. I will keep most of his siblings and will inbreed them to see the outcome for myself (only if he/she makes it to adulthood).

    you're not referring to radiation exposure are you?

    Why did you include Ninja?

    just because when i said mutant, it remind me of mutant ninja turtles so i said ninja scorpion. plus, i think that he is pretty bad with his 2 tails waving back and forth.

    thanks, I hope so too. not all two-tailed are the same and this one is definitely different from the rest.

    It's not really a two tailed scorpion...
    More like a two rear-ended scorpion
    The split starts at the mesasoma

    it is really a 2-tailed scorpion ;) got 2 tails doesn't it?!

    i'll be interested to see if it can molt through as well.

    also- it is interesting to see where the "split" occurs. aztek brought up a good point that the split occurs farther up. the others i have seen (just from the other couple of websites) the split occured right at the start of the tail. hopefully it molts through like the others did.

    either way, i'm sure someone's mentioned this before, although i didn't see it on a search...

    i thought it was sweet. :cool:
