    Tityus bahiensis
  7. how come they look like they got double stings?
  8. Brian S

    Brian S ArachnoGod Old Timer

    The other isnt a sting. Its often called a subaculear "tooth". I am not sure of the function. Maybe someone else here can enlighten us on this

    Carnell that female looks amazing!!! My favorite species! Sadly Tityus is illegal in Denmark.
  10. Do you have a DWA?

    P.S. I don't have DWA. I don't need it.

    I think it's a special license in the UK that you need in order to keep venomous animals. I don't know if that's 100% accurate but, that my hypothesis.

    Back on topic Nice Tityus spp. pictures.
  15. Murziukas

    It's a premission to own and keep buthidae scorpions (may be some other animals as well) but aplied only in UK as far as I know.
  16. it is a UK only thing, bloody expensive to you need it for ALL buthidae scorps and Hemiscorpius lepturus. Why cant they take Centruroides vittatus off that list !!!!!!!!!!!!
  17. Murziukas

    Murziukas Arachnobaron Old Timer

    Gigus, how much do you have to pay for it?
  18. it depends on your local council but up to and over £400 is not uncommon
    and if you do get one and you keep lethal inverts the life insurance is MASSIVE, vittatus arent lethal are they? thats why i dont understand why theyre on the list
  19. Murziukas

    Murziukas Arachnobaron Old Timer

    I think only C. Exilicauda has some fatalities in the past, others - quite uncomon in hobby or just painful.
    Ok, no more about DWA and Centruroides, it's Tityus thread. My appologies, back to the topic. :rolleyes:

    In order to get back on the subject of Tityus, here is a typical set up I use for both adults and subadults. It is a Gladware plastic box with moist peat, tree bark and a soda bottle cap for water.
