and i have a question, thease are the same size as my dune scorpion

my dune scorpion did better with small, or i should say tiny crickets, but he did sometimes eat adult crickets

the petshop where i get my crickets doesnt have medium, only smal and large

so what size should i get ? or should i do both sizes ?

another thing is thease scorps blend in perfect with there enclosure so i gota be careful doing tank maintence cuase they are hard to spot !

Have you tried finding roaches? Lateralis roaches might be good for that. Mealworms may be a good option, also. Judging size off that iPod you got sitting there, they look big enough to take down a large cricket, though. To me, at least.

Yeah these are good at blending in. I use a thin layer of white sand to help them stand out in otherwise dark wood and substate. Dune scorpion prefer smaller meals but my large female can take down (and EAT COMPLETLY) a full grown dubia so large or medium crickets will do fine.

They're all wild caught, so you might have some gravid ones. Very Happy

Prepare yourself for a LOT of kids regardless if theyre gravid or not.

I seperated my female when she gave birth mainly to make things easier on myself. These guys are pretty good at mating on bark I have two spermataphores to prove it. But I would still throw ina slate of rock to give them the option.

Totally right. That's the easiest way to sex Centruroides spp.

Pet shops, various online sources, in the wild and, of course, through the classifieds on this forum. Check out a user here named Vixvy. Great breeder.
