Heres a brief photo collection of some of my scorpions and inverts. All photo's are taken either with my I-Phone 4 or my Nikon SLR. (which I can barely use!!) I'll be adding to it over time with new pictures of my current collection and any new additions. Hope you all enjoy!!

Scorpions

Bothriurus dumayi - I have two of these, hopefully one male and one female as I'd love to attempt to breed them in the future.
This one I hope is male....

Caraboctonus keyserlingi - I have four of these, did have six but mating proved rather one sided for the males!!

Androctonus australis hector morph - Very secretive this one, comes out for a strut once its molted and hardened so I only have these two pics and there quite poor.

Impressive collection, and I absolutely love your photo quality...

Your rack is quite full, and it makes me want to fill mine up too...

Great collection, thanks for sharing,


Joey

Nice collection! My favourite has to be the S.maurus, such a cool looking scorp.

Thanks!! Yeah I've pretty much maxed out the capacity of the rack now, I'd love to get another but it cost an arm and a leg to fill that one!! The S.maurus is indeed a cool scorp but its the B.dumayi that do it for me!!

Great looking setups.  You stole my decor idea Smile.  I've always wanted to do an H. arizonensis enclosure with a bunch of columns and ruins sticking out of the substrate.

Thanks very much! I love creating the tanks, almost as much as the scorps themselves!! I'm getting a H. arizonensis, S. mesaensis and a few other sp in a few weeks so I'm gonna have plenty of tanks to make. I made my last H. arizonensis tank quite elaborate with rocky ruins, half a skull etc but he didnt use any of it and eventually caused it all to subside/collapse due to his crazy tunnel network!!
