    judging by the size, it looks like it has already molted before.

    oh yeah, it looked all messed up. didn't look nearly as cool or functional as the 2-metasoma 2-telson scorps we see.

    Maybe if it was more symmetrical.

    But everything is just popping out of nowhere!

    That's even cooler than Mr. Mephesto's 4-assed monkey:eek: Have you tried confusing it with multiple prey items to see if the telsons will strike independently?

    Yea, i hope so too. i am kinda worry that it won't because of the way the mesosoma is split like that and it'll may be hard for it to put that out.

    I'll try to see if he uses both tails when he does his killing, normally i just throw a fruit fly or a cricket in there and come back later to see that he's eating it.

    he seems to be eating and pooping ok with no problem

    i second that and judging where the split is it's very viable he could make it well into adult hood.... you might have to assist with the molts slightly..


    you know the more we breed these the more things we'll find out... =)

    That's the nicest looking two-tailed scorpion I've seen. Congrats!
    You should find someone with a decent camera to at least have some good photos if it dies.

    Had to come back & have another look- I love these Mutter museum style natural abberations. What are you going to do with the body when it reincarnates?

    Congratulations, KyuZo!!!!!

    You have the most beautiful scorpion in the world.

    Can you upload a video, of the scorp using both tails? I would like to see him attacking a cricket.

    Thanks

    he doesn't eat when i am around. also, when i touch his container, he would drop his food and run. it was kinda hard for me to even get his pictures.

    He is isolated from the rest and i am trying to provide him with the optimum condition.

    and when he molt i will update.
