I guess I am biased towards the c. sculpts since that is what I find at my house, but I do like their size and coloring the best. Nice photos! I like the scorpion kissing the cricket. LOL.
Hi Michiel,Hi John,
I liked that C.sculpturatus "gertschi morph", those where "my first Buthids" And of course the Tityus, but I am biased. Those T.bastosi are incredibly fast growers. The latter of what was born on june 10, is now instar 4. T.silvestris is a bit slower, although on the same feeding regimen in my care. Nice to some new shots from you.
That happened to me last weekend. I opened the box of T.ecuadorensis and I saw one female walking around with one young in her mouth and one in each claw. What a b*tch....LOL, and wasn't on holiday.Hi Michiel,
Thanks for the information, it will help me a lot. The newer Tityus species are very nice. I had a brood from each species while I was on vacation. Close to when your's were born. Bad timing, when I got home each mother had a single baby. I imagine the rest were picked of the back by the tank mates. I then removed the mothers to a seperate enclosure. They then threw the babies of within a day. I think I provided way to much stress. All of which could have been prevented had I been home. I know they came in gravid. I do have a few that were bred the day I got them, they got started the moment they were introduced. That was on May 18, so after 4 months, I'm checking daily. They are getting big. I've got my fingers crossed.
PS, the gertschi morphs are one of my favorites as well. These babies are the resuts of a "gertschi" and a normal female. I had one WC male and a bunch of females that I collected for the purpose of breeding to the male. All the babies had the gertschi morph traits. Seems like it's the dominent trait even though it's much rarer in the wild. I've only seem the one gertschi morph in all my collecting trips.
I don't think Brian is around much any more :/ There are very very few scorpion breeders in the US right now.Great photos and what an amazing collection! I am looking to get back into scorpions. Do you know how to get in touch with BrianS? I tried reactivating my Venom List account but to no avail. If you eve get in a place where you are looking to sell some of your surplus please PM me. And please more pics!
