robust? how so? you mean in body width or what?
width, girth etc. Just look at some of the female Tityus in this thread. The females are a thicker build. Of course the males are usually thin just as they are many other species out there
since you mentioned dimorphisms, this seems just as good a thread as any to ask this, but is there any validity to reports of isolated wild populations of T. serrulatus containing both males and females? i have heard of this, but never concretely.
I have heard of this too however the ones in captivity are of the parthenogenic kind thank God.
Anyway, Tom would probably be the one to ask on this subject since he knows Tityus spp very well.
Yes isolated sexual populations do exist:
LOURENÇO W.R. & CLOUDSLEY-THOMPSON J.L., 1999, Discovery of a sexual population of Tityus serrulatus. One of the morphs within the complex Tityus stigmurus (Scorpiones, Buthidae), J. Arachnol., 27, 154-158
Tityus stigmurus 5th instar
Very nice specimens Eric!Especially the Tityus clathratus is very pretty
how big are the stigmurus at 5th instar?
The one in the pic is just under 2 inches.
Tityus metuendus- enjoy!!
wow ! :}
I suppose it is a male... any female ?
Very impressive specimen...I wish I had one of those
How big is it?
very cool. Which camera did you use for the pic and which ground is in the terrarium? How big is he?
yes he is a male and yes i have one female, i hope she is gravid and i will get soon some babies.
the ground is on part of the tank, and it is one part ceramist and one part vermiculite to keep one half very wet.
looks like a cross between an Androctonus and a Babycurus
Wow...would be nice to get some of those...its just sweet
PM me when the babies are due :drool:
Very nice and rare speciment i must say, you have impressed a non tityus fan hahaha
who ided it? are you sure that it's a metuendus? where was it caught?
very nice specimen! post pictures of the females!
