into scorpions. Who wants to help? I do have 2 Pandinus imperators, but thats just a basic scorp. I'm talking about really getting into it.

What scorpions would you guys reccomend for me in the near future? (no limits, any scorp)

you might wanna think about any of the Centruroide species as well... my C vitts are always on the move and readily sting prey...

I had about 18 C.vittatus awhile back and they were great, I think I'll get a couple of those as well, but still want something else.

Yea Brian, I think they'd be interesting to you. They can sting you know, so, you better read up on them first:rolleyes: :rolleyes: . I haven't been heavy into scorps. I'm more of an archnogeneralist. I jumped around all over the place for several years. I like it all. I fell for local centis years ago and mostly focus on keeping those right now. I can count 9 scorp species I've kept. My favorite so far is Parabuthus transvaalicus. I received some from Brian and the AWOL, Kraken several months ago. Pretty active and grow fast. Funny to watch them chase their food down too. They look really determined. I like medium to large scorps. P. trans fit the standard there too. Do you want desert or trop species, or both?

If you want to try your hand at breeding up a big colony go with the tropical barkscorpion spp such as Tityus, Centruroides or Babycurus. Gestation periods are brief and the young mature fairly quick. Tityus falconensis is probably the easiest I have seen to culture. You can breed them on accident LOL

Tityus spp 2-3 in. adults, Babycurus spp about 3-3.5 in adults. The young are easy to raise despite their small size

how much do Lychas sp, and Tityus sp usually cost???
Depends on where you get them. I was selling various Tityus spp for $10 each with the stipulation the person buys 5 or more but needless to say I am sold out again.

Here is an add offering a T stigmurus which is parthenogenic so no male needed to produce young.
