    I'd have to say my Grosphus grandidieri is my favorite species. They are very active and are 5x faster/more aggressive with crickets than any Androctonus species I've ever seen.

    I just put mine together today to start a breeding project too.

    I'd say it's a tie between P. imperator and B. jacksoni.

    Centruroides Noxius, Centruroides Suffusus, Centruroides Vittatus, Tytius Falconensis, Androctonus Mauritanicus, Androctonus Australis


    :)
     
  4. I would say its a tie between H. arizonensis, H. spadix, and C. sculpturatus. Mainly due to the fact that I live where these can be found.

    Awesome genus right?! These are my new favorite. Forget every other scorpion I ever mentioned. This has it all.
    Active all night
    Non burrowing pet hole
    Semi bark scorpion
    Always stings it's prey
    Eats like an 2-3 times a week
    As big as a Hadrurus
    Beautiful coloration.
    I'm like where have have you been all my life!

    Not another Grosphus ankarana. You made me cry.

    I only have three scorpions and they are all baby Hadogenes troglodytes so I gotta say they are my favorite :)

    I had a chance to get one from Vixvy, but I just couldn't convince both parents. I was so mad.

    Pretty, why is it your favorite sp?

    Because I am doing a life cycle study on them. Because they look like a Rhopalurus species (the collector offered them as such to me) with those posteriorly widened tails, rather large, stout scorpions, very feisty :)

    Very cool do you have any pictures of your specimens?

    Just saw this post. I’ve gather ALL the information I could on this species and I’m taking my own notes being as detailed as I can be including feedings, molts, and general behavior. I’m hoping to get an English caresheet/bio done for this one soon and update in the future with more information. I think I have a good amount of data now but still missing some vital information like gestation period and lifespan.

    There is very little information I found. Most of the stuff is European, and translated. The only thing really covered is basic care, of which is not very solid, and is usually taken from another source. I'm glad to see some real note taking and the fact that it is reputable.

    I did get some useful information from the european hobbiest as it's more readily avialble in Europe but still not a common species and still a lot of missing information. But i've read a lot about their natural habitat, similar species, and just non stop internet searches lol. My own notes from my experience are based on sleepless nights l literrally just stay up watching my scorps for hours.

    That's unhealthy. Useful, but unhealthy.

    At the moment I'm very fond of Isometrus maculatus and Rhopalurus junceus. Though Hadogenes paucidens has it's own way of proving how "less" can sometimes be "more" haha.

    I. maculatus and R. junceus are both on my radar. I love the color and patterns. My profile has a list of the species I want, but I'm not sure if both are on their. H. paucidens is cool, but I already have a Pandinus imperator, but they seem too alike to have both.

    tyrantuladub Arachnosquire

    Nope, you're missing the I. maculatus haha ;) Well, to each their own; I've got a P. imperator as well, and will more than likely be acquiring an H. paucidens at the upcoming Cincinnati Reptile Expo :D
