Yes, you must have some ;-)! Why she forbids scorpions?
I've been away from the forum for a while, so I'm only replying now. But she dislikes the appearance of scorpions; I think she finds them frightening. However, she has just recently given me the go-ahead, so there should be a Euscorpius italicus on the way soon. Very excited!

As always, the photos are gorgeous by the way.

Johnny, had any contact with Alex Tietz the past few years? one of the enigmas of the past!

Your Burkina Faso variant reminded me of him! Had some of those off him a while ago, thought they were fat 'docile' ones :D

I need to get some H.H's back in my collection, its simplicity is part of its beauty, regular brown scorpion with pretty granules
nice to see a male too in your pictures!

Unfortunately, I have never met Alex Tietz. I do not know what he's doing and why he has stopped.
I find it good that you have not forgotten him and it honors me that I have moved up to.

You're right with everything you say abput this sp. :)!

Thank you!
If you C. nigrescens mean ... It is simply a feast for the eyes! The matt black with colorful pups:)

Thanks for the compliment!
I have a simple Cam and i do my best :-D...I'm not always satisfied!
I breed for several years and will still take some pictures. I am glad that the images you prepare fun, because that's what they should :)

These are indeed some of the most gorgeous scorpions shots I have seen. Thanks for taking the time to share. I also want to commend you on the substrate/enclosures. They look mint! Good to see people in the hobby that do things right! Nice job.

Two questions: What type of camera(s) are you using for the shots?
Where did you get the white sand in the enclosures? Love the texture.

Thanks again!
