Turns out I dont have a female A. bicolor I have a female A. crassicauda...GRRRRR I know its a little difficult to tell but I really wish I was sold the right thing haha. Here are some pictures I guess breeding of my bicolors is going to have to wait until my female bicolor matures to im pretty sure 7i at least I hope she isnt at 5i haha!











Thank you Smile

Aren't Androctonus crassicauda more expensive than A. bicolor? If so, I don't see why you would be mad. You got a great deal. I do get the part aboout not being able to breed though.

This line of thinking is really prevalent in the hobby and it makes me wonder why you all feel this way? Is it rarity? Novelty? Do they fly?

study Studies have shown that Androctonus crassicauda does not fly.

I think certain collectors want to see an appreciation for certain exotics. That is completely normal. The man wanted an A. bicolor for genetic purposes. I'd be happy and pissed off at the same time if I invested in something that happened to be gold, but I could not manipulate it for what I needed. I get it. can you imagine if A.B could fly? cash money right there.
