migzvalenciano: I feed once a week. All the scorpions don't eat every time, but normally they do. Dubias can be tricky to feed with because they move very little, and thus the scorpions have trouble finding them. But once they move, my scorpions eat them just as well as any other feeding item.

A new picture:


Uroplectes chubbi with a small brood. Gestation period about 4 months.

A couple of new pics. Poor pictures, but the event was special so I thought I'd share anyway.

Parabuthus raudus light morph mating:





The mating was very quick, and that's part of the reason the pics got so bad. But I'm very happy with the mating, and hopefully the female will give birth in not too distant future.

what is the temp you keep them at? also, did you ever owned Mesobuthus martensii? I want to know the gestation period of these and their natural cycling....

I'm happy you are posting, excellent pictures and very nice collection! :worship:

I keep growing specimens and gravid females of most species at 30-32 degrees Celsius in the daytime, with a little drop at night. Adult males are kept a bit colder.

I've never owned M. martensii, so I can't say anything about them.

Thank you for the pics, I didn't realize the color variance in Villosus. That and I love the Uroplectes. Thank you. :worship:
