PostSubject: my gravid LQ   7/26/2013, 3:37 pm

this is my gravid LQ. she's getting big. i'm guessing she'll pop within a month?



i really need to cover those air holes or something because when she pops, i'm willing to be that the scorplings will try and crawl out of them. its just a plastic shoebox and its all i had at the time. i don't want to transfer her to a new enclosure now because of stressing her and how far along she is.

she has a problem with her genital operculum. it looks like there's sand stuck in it. it could also be mycosis but i'm thinking its the black sand i use. i dont like the stuff. its that sand you get at the pet store. its really fine. i don't think its too great for scorpions because if any wet sand will stick all over the scorpion.

i'm not getting my hopes up just yet about a successful brood. her problem is bugging me and she's been gravid for a long time now. i'm not exactly sure since when but i think its been about a year now. last time she ended up popping out dead scorplings and some embryos, IIRC. i've been keeping her a lot warmer within the past couple months. i think that was part of the reason she had a bad brood last time.

i think i can see little scorplings inside of her but i'm not exactly sure.

my phone decided to cooperate and give me a decent pic this time Smile

she's such a beautiful scorp! this one's my favorite. i've had her for 5 years now. this will probably be her last attempt at producing a brood.

Wow! 5 years is a long time. Will raing the humidity and dropping the temps make her pop?

Well, I heard that for certain species that triggers birth. Don't know if it's the same for LQ's or not.

Yea, best thing is to get the temp up to 89 Fahrenheit and have water available.
I found that two things make scorps drop dead babies or embryos, low temps and stress. If you cover those two issues then everything should go smoothly.

It's pretty much impossible to keep them stress free. Really what he meant and what is necessary when breeding any scorpions is merely minimizing the stress they are exposed to. This means not checking on her that much, reducing vibrations they may feel, keeping the heat up, no bright or UV light exposure, etc.
