Wow that's a noticeable difference! Are they both the same sex?
i had a ratio of size like that and the smaller one became a homocide victim
That's a pretty big difference...:?
male and female? :?
there is a "savanna form" and a "forest form" I think it's a pretty big different in size betweene them.
Females they are.
And yeah, I was thinking maybe it was a forest and savanah forms.
which form is the larger of the two:?
Forest morph i bigger
thats really interesting. i always just assumed the smaller ones were automatically males... gotta love learning knew things
that's very interesting! I wonder what mine will turn out to be?
haha hope you spelled new wrong! Just letting you know buddy.
yeah i have 5 emps and theyre a mix of savannah and forest. i have 3 males and 2 females im hoping they breed.
The vast majority of the specimens coming into the pet trade are the Savannah form. That being said, you are still going to find size variation, immature specimens and captive bred specimens which tend to the smaller size. Making presumptions about the geographical origin of a scorpion that came to this side of the ocean in a giant crate tends to be a bit on the presumptive side.
why would u hope i spell it wrong? or did mr. wanna correct somebody need to be corrected himself haha...
haha you got me on that one! LOL
Could this affect their breeding habits? I tried to keep a male and female together, but they keep fighting. There are plenty of hides, though the male looks like a savannah species and the female looks like a rainforest species. Not just because of their size, but their body texture.
I was gonna ask the same question about breeding and if I have one, would I need to make sure the female I get is the same "type"?
now it all makes sense. this is why my gargantuan female ripped apart my smaller male
