All these breeding projects have me excited! Wait, that sounded wrong...I seriously can't wait to see all these new species making their way into the hobby!

Unfortunately my male C bicolor died a few days ago. The heat has really increased lately and I believe it was a bit fragile from the recent moult. Seriously gutted but have another couple on the way

In the meantime I have rehomed the female. You can barely see her at the bottom of the cork tube.



In case you are wondering, the tub is one of these:

Well further news on my C bicolor female. She was meant to be subadult when I got her, and moulted 3 months ago so I assumed she was adult. Yesterday i noticed she had moulted yet again!!!!

I spoke to the guy who sold her to me and he says he got confused and it may even have one more moult to go so it will be MASSIVE!!!

Hope to get some pics when she hardens up

Nice! Yeah these apparently get up to 8i and get pretty long. The bigger the scorp, the bigger the brood!

Just a quick heads up.....It's common knowledge amongst German keepers of C. bicolor that this species needs plenty of ventilation to thrive. Humid conditions and stagnant air kills these guys quicker than than a 9mm to the temple....That may have been the reason your male died.
A few holes in the top of a container simply isn't good enough...if the air in your scorp room is still, then set up a small table fan or computer fan just to get some circulation in the air.
I've removed the glass front of my enclosure and replaced it with small masked (6mm square) chicken wire. I also have a oscillating table fan mounted on a wall blowing at a low setting just to give a bit of air flow in my room. This fan runs as long as my lights are on.
I also believe my other scorps benefit from the exchange of air.

The only down side is it's then tough to maintain a high humidity. So what i do with my bicolors is simply to pour water (not spray) directly through the masked wire down onto the substrate until the substrate below the wire is well saturated. I've had no problems at all doing this although it's my experience that adults are quite tolerant to changing conditions as long as they don't have still, stagnant air...A short dry period doesn't hurt them at all.

Thanks for this tip. Much appreciated.

Will change the lid to a full mesh one. There is air movement in my garage where i keep my inverts.

Den, that was very useful information thank you. Does the same thing apply to C. margaritatus?

Hm, i don't think so although don't quote me on it...I didn't take air flow into account with my own C. margaritatus when i had them and i never experienced any problems.
I speak regularily with a few german breeders and none of them have mentioned the same air flow requirements for C. margaritatus so i tend to think it's mainly C. bicolor this environmental factor refers to.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I read that C. bicolor is found close to sea level in it's natural habitat. If that's the case, then the air flow issue makes sense.

I dropped a cricket in her enclosure and she actively left her hide to hunt the cricket. Quite amazing to watch her sneak up on the cricket and grab it before it had a chance to jump. She then proceeded to eat it outside her hide
