Who thinks my emps are going to be parents before long. Not a lot has been eaten lately and she just keeps getting fatter and fatter. I hope she is but I just want other opinions. Thanks.

Pandinus imperator

The loving pair





Heres the proud male



Here is the female that I want the opinions on

The male will enjoy a nice meal if he is not seperated soon. They must be a loving pair if he hasen't been eaten yet. {D

Yeah, I remember. I'm just a little excited and wanted opinions. I had no idea this was going to happen. Can't wait to see them.

Would the male eats the babies? The female would kill and eat the male?

she'll probably molt bro. The male is as big as the female.

isn't the telson usually red when they are mature???
that's probably just the lighting bro. Emps are not green but the picture tells a different story. I don't know how what kind of lighting they used because it doesn't show green color when I take a picture of my emps.

Can't see any embryos through the pleural membrane, I'd say ecdysial excitement is ensuing......:}

the female looks my my big gravid girl did about december/january (mated her in september)

It's kinda hard to see embryoes in an emp.... when i could see them in mine she popped a few days later (this was last june/july ). anyways good luck with the buggers.

A comparison of the plaps would lead one to belive Mark is correct.
