Here is a pic of my deceased Hadrurus arizonensis pallidus under the black light. Note how the digital camera responded to the UV lighting. I haven't tweaked the colors at all. I have noticed the camera has a little light amplification ability....this may have caused the color.
Here is a pic of my Noodleheadus lococaninus Giant Colorado Furry scorp. Its the only one with a name. It is also the onle one I handle...in fact he is so docile I don't even put him in a cage. Noodle.
You are correct. Some varieties of this family of species are capable of extruding copious amounts of a foamy slimy liquid from their mouth but not enough study has been done to determine if it is dangerous. The Noodleheadus genus emits little of this substance.
However, one important keeping strategy for this variety is to NEVER mist it or leave it out in the rain as it will emit a horrid wet-dog odor as a warning. Substrate can be anything the Noodleheadus chooses. Of course this only applies only when the owner is not home. Well...actually...it doesn't...I'm a softy...
this whole thread has me LMAO!!!
I take care of a Goldenious Retrievinous daily, and the entire 1/2 hour visit is spent with this particular specimen madly chasing mirror reflections (if it's sunny), and laser light beams (if cloudy)
This is the most bizarre behaviour I have observed with this species...can anyone else corroborate this behaviour with their specimens?!
You are both correct, Noodleheadus lococaninus and especially the Goldenious Retrievinous are well know to respond to laser light. The Noodleheadus has also been found to be extremely responsive to reflections from various objects such as CD cases and the sun reflecting off of dish water etc.
It is a behavior, though well studied by many of us , that is not entirely understood and sometimes perplexing :? to me in particular. It may infact be related to the pesky ;P squirrel behavior that the Caninus family sometimes exhibits. This is sometimes know as the pesky ;P feline behavoir as well. The Caninus will ambulate back and forth =D in an interesting display...sometimes producing copious the aformentioned slimy foamy excreation.
This family of related behaviors needs more detailed observation and study.
Here is one of two Grosphus scorps I got yesterday from Pat. This frist one I believe to be a male Grosphus madagascarensis. Its about 2 inches long. These guys are communal. I believe all Grosphus are.
