Here's some pics of these guys. They are a very fascinating species and a joy to keep.
1,5 years!! wow I guess I will not get my hopes up for my two female O.S.nebe giving birth any time soon :"(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.
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.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.
