Freshly molted T stigmurus
New T serrulatus young
nice pictures of the Tityus serrulatus !
I will make photos of my Tityus species at the weekend .
I keep :
Here one photo ( a bit older ...T. falconensis male )
Guys, any ideas on sexing T. Falconensis? There are two of them in Lithuania and it would be nice if it would be a pair. Tityus photo by Dennis1 looks quite similar to my tityus what could mean I have male as well. Generaly, females are smaller/bigger? More bulbous/ smoother shaped claws? Any hints from your experience?
In most Tityus spp the males have more bulbous chela and less robust than the females. I hear T falc. is difficult to sex as you have to do a pectine count. Someone with more experience with these can hopefully shed more light on this.
female T. falconensis are mostly bigger than the male .
I think you can see it well if you see a male next to a female .
Not the best photo , but I think you can see it . The bigger one is the female .
I agree...not the best photo
Gigus, it's not life insurance you need it's liability insurance. You can't get a DWA without it. It actually doesn't cost quite as much as you would expect! [ /work mode]
The photo is nice , but you cant see that the males are much bigger that the female
At the moment I have just 1.0.1 T. falconensis , so I cant make a photo with a male and a female .
By the way : Someone here who sell a female ?
Tityus stigmurus giving birth
Sweet Brian! I got a feeling T. stigmurus will be my first Tityus, I like them...
I am getting a decent supply of those now and hopefully I can get a factory going soon
The young T serrulatus have molted into 2nd instar now. I have most separated although there are a few stragglers still on Mom. This was Mom's first meal in about a month and a half. Note the 2nd instar young still holding on to her
T. trinitatis :
It would appear that I have a male Tityus falconensis. Look at the chela. The others his size have much thinner chela so I am going to say are females which means I will be putting them together soon to see if they will mate
How many time to fullgrown size?
Are you speaking of how many molts? If so I believe most Tityus molt 5 times
no, i speacking about how many month.
sorry i've a poor english!
I had one group mature in about 10 months. That is with warm temps and plenty to eat
General maturity times for Tityus spp., with a good food supply and kept at reasonable temperatures are (it's always going to be pretty variable):
Tityus serrulatus: 12-14 months
Tityus bahiensis: 10-12 months
Tityus falconensis: 8-10 months (fastest growing of the species kept in captivity)
Tityus trinitatis: 9-11 months
Tityus paraensis: 9-10 months
Tityus costatus: not known yet
