    There are several trying to breed Tityus so they will be more plentiful in the near future

    Hey George,

    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??

    Hi
    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....

    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?

    Eric;
    Are those some of the ones that Martin sent you?
     
  15. SOAD

    SOAD Arachnoknight Old Timer

    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....

    does anyone know the max size for serrulatus and bahiensis? in inches preferably.
     
  18. Brian S

    Brian S ArachnoGod Old Timer

    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
     
  19. pandinus

    pandinus Arachnoking Old Timer

    so we're lookin at about vittatus size here?
     
  20. Brian S

    Brian S ArachnoGod Old Timer

    Yes but Tityus are much more robust than vittatus.
