PostSubject: T. stigmurus questions   12/30/2013, 11:04 am

hello , im going to be getting a few T. stigmurus whenever ken gets them in.... i have a few questions

1)are the male and female tail length different like C. gracilis or is it harder to tell male and female apart ?

2) also about the venom..... does tavegil 2mg really work for allergic reactions ? i read on a sting report thats what they used

i plan on putting 2 males and 3 females into a 5 gallon tank with moist coco dirt becuase my research says they need semi moist condition but good air flow.

and i also read that they can survive in 70-90 degrees but they like it around 80 to 85 best...

is all of this information correct ?

thanks Smile

T. stigmurus are females. They are parthenogenetic. as for your second question since everyone reacts differently to venom I dare to answer your question.

Every Tityus stigmurus in the hobby is a female. Literally. In the wild, the male to female ratio is something like 1/145 or something like that. Basically, one T. stigmurus will keep reproducing babies all on its own until it dies. This is known as parthenogenesis. They will become gravid shortly after reaching adulthood. So when you do get some, just realize they are all females, and you won't have to worry about mating them. And why wait for Ken? You can get some right now from gromgrom for a pretty good deal. Just saying, if you're eager to get them.

As far as care goes: Think of where they're native from, Brazil. Hot and humid. Anywhere between low 70's to the high 80's will work for them. Just make sure there's adequate moisture in the substrate for the humidity to rise.

Potency/temperment: Coming strictly from my own experience here. They can be skittish, and fast. But for the most part, mine seem pretty docile, and aren't very defensive. That said though, they aren't gravid adults yet, so that can very well change. I hear some can be pretty defensive though, but I have yet to see any such behavior with the three of mine. One should also realize they are a HOT species. You might be in quite a bit of pain if you get stung.

I hope I was able to help as thoroughly as I can.

I had a friend who has been tagged by a few scorps in his time, and he says Tityus are by far the worst he has experienced so be careful Wink

They are not hesitant to sting. I would be very cautious. I dont know when Ken will get them in next personally as he didn't want mine earlier this year when I offered to trade him for some Sicarius Razz

Gravid adults are more of the same, but quicker to take flight.
