  2. Very clear pictures. The first of the male B. jacksoni is especially nice. It seems that H. flavidulus is becoming more common since it's ID was questioned.

  3. Hello :)

    Yes, you're right. H. flavidulus was very rare. And now there are more than H. tamulus sindicus.
     
  4. Hi Alex,

    I thought most of the specimens in circulation that were labeled as H. tamulus sindicus were really H. flavidulus...Kovarik was doing some work I believe on this "new" species, or with a better description... Is it just some of the specimens, or something?

    Cordially,
    Tuhin
     

  5. Hello :)

    It's right that at least some of the former thought to be H. tamulus sindicus are in fact H. flavidulus. I don't know if most of the specimen kept in captivity, there are some "real" sindicus in the hobby as well, but most people i know found out that they were keeping flavidulus when they took a closer look which you have to do if you want to be absolutely sure.
     
  6. Ah, thanks very much. Making that "closer look" is very important.

    Hello Alex!

    Beautiful collection, from old posts and new! was a nice thread to ressurect!


    how are the B.marocanus? From the buthus i've kept in the past (B.mardochei) i found them to eat too much then not do anything at all for months :p
    are you giving this species a cooler winter period?

    not sure if they are from the Atlas mountains or other areas!!?? very interesting and pretty buthus

    wow!! if you get any babies you want to part with let me know!
     
  11. Hi Thank you,

    I'll post more pictures here.
    B. maroccanus is an aggressive and lively Scorpion. It grows very quickly and is of medium size. The breeding do a lot of fun ... especially adult animals are beautiful.
    I give them a cooler time, yes.

    I mean, they are endemic ...


    Okay, no problem :)

  13. Very pretty species! I like the C. testaceus the best, but those C. limbatus from the different localities are also good to see.

    Beautiful photography and lovely scorps. My wife tolerates my Poecilotheria (and other 'scary' tarantulas) because I already had them when we moved in together, but she expressly forbids scorpions and it's driving me crazy. Just look at how amazing they are. I must have some!
     
  17. Wow, that B. arenicola female was really gravid! The translucent coloration is gorgeous.
     
  18. Yes, you must have some ;-)! Why she forbids scorpions?

    Yes, you say it. The Babys are now in 5. Instar...im very happay about that...no more WC from this sp. :-D
