    HI

    Tityus spec.
    Tityus falconensis
    Tityus serrulatus
    Tityus stigmurus
    Tityus trinitatis
    Tityus bahiensis

    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.

    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 ? ;)

    UPDATE:
    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

    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

    Are you speaking of how many molts? If so I believe most Tityus molt 5 times

    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
