I got three females today and a male on the way! I was blown away when I watched each of them use their metasoma as antennae! I don't know the fiction but they're definitely putting them to some sort of use in a way that no other scorp that I've seen does. Why do we have the exact same species? Because we're awesome! Haha.

They are indeed cool, little, fascinating beasties only they grow so incredibly slow for a Buthid.......So I stopped keeping them. I kept O.fuscipes and O.s.negebensis, but never bred them. I had only one O.s.negebensis, btw, but also a gravid female of O.fuscipes, that was gravid for 1,5 year and never gave birth, so I sent this specimens that I had identified as O.fuscipes to someone for confirmation of my ID work.

I don't know if these two species are comparable in the sense of gestation periods. Maybe O.s.negebensis is somewhat quicker :) Good luck

that is why i want them. that is so fascinating that i just HAVE to get some... sadly, theyre expensive and rare in the US. Or one of the two.

OP's specimen needs some Slimfast. looks like my desert hairy did most of its life; a balloon on legs
