Kulleger imaging 2002

I was checkin` out the Hadrurus Arizonensis pic on www.invertcare.com. Is that a gavid female or do they have a tendency to gorge themselves to that point? My female is about that thick and i hear that they need a more specific humidity to birth there clutch.

Thanx in advance,
Mat

No it is not gravid...it is just well fed :D

I have noticed that haddies, more than any other species I have kept, tend to get quite fat when fed regularly. I even cut back on their feeding from time to time but apparrently it is not enough. My V.spinigerus is similarly plump.

My theory on this has to do with their longevity which is reportedly in the neighborhood of 15-20 years. I think in order to accomplish this and due to living in the desert habitat they do; they must have a slower metabolism than other scorps.
