thank you very much for this answers.
the one that is eluding us...for now! :wicked:
Wow...niceties...anyway to get my hands on them ?
Need to replenish my lost...just lost 3 out of 5 tat was shipped to me...no idea why
There are several trying to breed Tityus so they will be more plentiful in the near future
I see my lil T.stigmurus looks plump...ad at 2nd instar...molting ?
If they are molting, I'm not putting any food in there.
I WANT MORE TITYUS :wicked:
don't you think you take a awfull lot of a risk holding the T.paraensis in that way?? I understand it is for the sake of the picture, but this is a fast en very toxic species..... If it would be startled, it could run up your arm or something like that...
As I am receiving this species soon, I trying to get as much info as I can. Not a lot of people will hold a Tityus on a piece iof bark like you do. Is there a calculable risk or is it a docile species??
ive actually handled that specimen, its more docile than my emperors, but a WC T.paraensis i had was VERY unpredictable
i'd advise you not to handle them, and to be cautious, mine were just slow or something
both my females died about 3-5 months after becoming adult.. maybe its just my specimens
Well I wasn't planning on doing so, George, but thanks for the advice. I have heard from more guys (at least 2 or 3) that they have problems maintaining the females. They either die before, or (shortly) after the molt to adulthood?? Very typical and interesting, this strange problem....Maybe it has something to do with captive conditions....
Two other spp..
Eric this are the uglier scorpions i have ever seen. =p
have you breeded t.melanostictus? and why there isn't pictures of them on your web page???????????
what are the adult sizes of most tityus anyways? i never really thought about it, i just figured they would be about centruroides size, but then i realized that some of the tropical centruroides get quite large. what am i to expect here?
Are those some of the ones that Martin sent you?
i would say yes... eric posted this pics some time ago in Martin's thread "scorpions from trinidad"... and about tityus size... most are 6-7 cm some are smaller 2-3 cm and some are bigger 10-11 cm... i'm not sure but i thinj that tityus paraensis is bigger than any centruroides... i'm not sure cause males centruroides have a very long tail....
Yes I breed it. Pictures will be soon on the website, I didn't have enough time to do it.
Yes they are.
does anyone know the max size for serrulatus and bahiensis? in inches preferably.
About 3 inches or so. Although there are some that are a bit smaller.
The one you got at AC looked to be 2nd or 3rd instar at most. They mature at 6th instar
so we're lookin at about vittatus size here?
Yes but Tityus are much more robust than vittatus.
