Ok ixnay on the edclawray! God Daxn! AGH!!!!!!! Ha Ha Ha. Adiadiadi.
Sorry, I'm trying to calm myself down.
Oh my god.
I think I might go crazy.
Dang that is F'ing incredible!
Wait a minute, I gotta change my Desktop background!
Dude, you can't just post a picture like that and not give some info on it. Can it be kept like the Emperor and Redclaw. Are you selling these? How much? I think I need 3 of them. I guess I should look at your site.
I have to admit, the scorp doesn't show that striking purple milky sheen under normal lighting - in fact, it only came out when I turned off the flash. Yes, that's right - turned it off. I guess it allowed the full spectrum being reflected off the exoskeleton to show up, whereas with the flash it kind of blows the colors out a little (?). Here's another pic without flash.
Here's one using the flash and a slight zoom-in with macro. This is closer to what it looks like in 'normal room lighting' but I suspect the color sheen in the other pics is evident in natural sunlight.
Interesting though that the flash actually *prevented* the purple from coming out. Usually a flash will cause more intense than usual hues in scorps, pedes and spiders from my experience...
A most incredible coloration. I think i have found what I'm going to keep in this 75 gallon tank I have had on stand-by for the last week. How many did you get? *lol* I think 75 gal will suffice for about fifteen of em'. Time to visit your site again. *grins*
