That's a lot of babies C. chiapanensis! How big did your female grow, Karsten? I have subadult specimen, it's such a large species!

Nice. What was the gestation period on the H. caboverdensis?

Aren't you worried about the little ones escaping through the airholes? They can constrict themselves fairly well can't they?

They are nearly the same as C.margaritatus or gracilis from the size.

@Tabor
The caboverdensis was born in 09/06, molted adult 04/07 and gave birth last week.

@at all
Thx!

Cheers

Hi Karsten,
Did you have any pale morphs of Centruroides chiapanensis?
I have produced 3 or 4 broods and some are a pale color

Hi,
I dont see any in the pics. It is easy to tell if any are pale even with 1st instars. Here is an older pic of mine and you can note the pale forms as not having the dark coloration on the back


This is the pale form at 2nd instar


This is the "normal" dark form
