Some of you says they never drink in bottle cap and some of you says they do. Well, most of my desert species and tropical species drinks in bottle cap. Here's my Hottentotta hottentotta drinking. I'll try to add more pics when I capture them drinking ;P

Oh yes, my Hottentotta species particularly H. hottentotta and H. trilineatus always drank from a bottle cap.

And furthermore I always offered water to my L.qs and they are some of the thirtiest scorps I've ever observed. Some have argued against this and fear it may raise the humidity. Well, I have never lost a L.q. And sadly, when I removed the waterdish whether it be energy drink bottle or pill bottle cap, my Deathstalkers would seek the water source out and circle around confusedly.

I don't know bro. Last October, she dropped some eggs. Not sure if it's from stress or because I have her in my hotbox. I also have an H.judaicus dropped eggs and 1 L.q female that didn't let any babies go on her back. This happened when I didn't provide them water. Hopefully things will change this time. My gravid females now drinks H2o like there's no tomorrow.

Hey Ed,

Well Ive heard H. hottentotta can drop once every three months so I think it would be safe to say you could be expecting a brood fairly soon because I think I can see embryos on the light form female.


Cheers.

Bro,
I can definitely see her packing embryos. I hope you're right :D.

my australis also drinks water, unfortunately it prefers to cover it with sand afterwards and burrow under the cap. :p
