    Just sitting at home on a rainy day. I'm bored. Maybe this will help end someone else's boredness.

    It's 5i. Can't wait for mine to mature either. They take soooo long.

    Finally got one, hey man ? {D

    Well, just know they take a while to mature, and HOT temps help them give birth (assuming you breed them).

    Yeah, I turned it up to 300F last night and she pooped out three litters. So freakin sweet dude. :D I soooo wish it was like that. I figure it's gonna be about five more months before this male matures. He is averaging about 2 1/2 months per instar. I even keep the heat in there a grillin'. He has the choice to go to the cool side of the tank, but he loves it hot. :eek:

    so you do have a breeding pair right?

    i hope things work out for you, Parabuthus species tend to have a reputation for being hard to breed. good luck :)

    What makes them hard to breed? Do they not like to mate? Infertile embryos? Or she eats them? Thanks, ryan

    (sorry if this is a hijack, I have heard this before and haven't heard reason)
    Thanks for the pics saxman! NICE
