Another G. flavopiceus pic. These are some wicked little scorps. They were juvies at that size by the way. Adults are about 2-2.5 inches length.

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.

John,

Nice pics! What is the LD50 for the Nooodleheadus?

Cheers,
Dave

Dave,

The LD50 of the Noodleheadus depends on whether or not he has consumed cat droppings in the last 24hrs on one of his bi-daily walks.:rolleyes:

AKA: He farts like ones granfather on Mylanta :8o

Isn't there also the drowning by drool factor when dealing with that species as well?

Yes Scott,

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...:D

Hey John, I understand that the Noodleheadus has been known to have a very energentic reaction to laser light. Have you observed any of this behavior? :?

Atrax

P.S. Great pics by the way!

laser light and mirror fun!

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?!

Gary and IM,

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 :D, 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.

John

John,

Your new scorps are gluttons. They're as bad as me at an all-you-can eat joint. ;)

Cheers,
Dave
