Some nice shots here. I particularly like the second closeup view, great looking carapace. I find carapace form to be quite fascinating and the Buthids have some pretty amazing variation. Good work getting the ecdysis shots too...:clap:

well very soon after the second female pop too i might sell off all the kids as its too much to handle for me right now! hahah so keep a look out oh FS/t in 1-2 weeks time :)

thanks guys for all teh comp;limeents. close up pic is a pain in the ass in makeing sure the scorp don move and the lighteing is right unfortunalet im using some yello ikea bulb which makes the photos not so nice, i hope to improvbe on that soon :p~

as for l muc, they don do much but they are damn fun to watch and observe, when untreatened, they seem to be like slow and stuff, some tgime refusing to move, once irritated they seem to move at high speed that because of this i lost one in my room - not found yet! haha. go ahead for it! its a cool species.!


compner7 - hehe i raised the parents form young too, they r pretty easy to keep andbreed took me less then 1 year from 3rd/4th till birth :) and the male is the oldest! hahah and i find that hes the collest among all :)

mark- i cant agree with you more, absoulte love those pattern on ther "head", another speciment with these granulations on theor heads is Mesobuthus Tamulus (Hottentotta Tamulus?). they r my first desert scorpions L)
