I have a 4i Parabuthus schlecteri and I would like to know what instar can I sex it? It hadn't eaten once in my care. How large do they normally get? That's all I really need to know atm.
I will in a few hoursIf you can get a pic of the pectines, then we may be able to sex it. Not very well versed in scorp sexing though, so it may be too young. Should get about 4-5" (?). Pics would help to sex
Yeah it's already had somwhat of a spray at me already :] After the picture was taken, the clean plastic had a drop of venom on it so I assume it tried to spray mesure does look plump! might be getting ready to molt soon and that could also explain the lack of eating. I wouldn't be too worried this early in. assuming nothing is wrong...scorps will eat when they are ready.
ps...if I'm not mistaken, this species might possess the ability to squirt venom like a few other parabuthus. just be aware of that.
Yeah. A feisty one. Hope she moltsShe had a good meal before I sent her to you, so that's probably part of the reason she hasn't eaten since. Been a while since the last molt too, so she's probably due. She's a feisty one, so not surprised she might have tried to spray you.
