    From looking at your pics I am curious what types of containers you are using for the housing, some of them look like acrylic containers and I am currently looking for some "nice on the eyes" containers

    The P. villosus had around 80 young.

    I have most of my scorpions in regular semi-transparent plastic containers.

    Some awesome pics and species there Richard! :D Always wanted to keep P.capensis in the past.....because it was the coolest scorp in Scorpions of South Africa, Leemings' book....

    Love the raudus and the schlechteri. Wish they were in the US. :(

    Both of my liosoma are showing embryos, and occasionally sunning. Sadly they havent covered their burrows yet ;)

    Nice broods Richard! Besides Orthochirus scrobiculosusb negebensis, Uroplectes otjimbinguensis must be the scorpion with the most funny name......:D

    Wow, I always look at this thread with apprecation and envy. I'd love to be able to keep and breed half of what you have.

    Thanks John
