Are you still going to do a big colony with these or do you plan on selling any any time soon? I see they are starting to get pretty big! Smile

They're still all 2I, so they're actually quite small. The majority are eating well and I haven't seen any signs of cannibalism. Some have already begun to burrow (and share burrows!).

This last bit suggests that my colony idea may work out, so I definitely want to keep most of them. I've given away five to friends (leaving me with 21), and I want to send a pair to Rasputin to make up for his losses (unless I find a M/F pair on one of my hunts), so I won't be giving away many more if I do. I'd like to keep at least 10-15 in a community. I haven't been able to find any adults lately save for one female that went to a friend of mine.

So short answer, no, I'm not selling any.

Long answer, I might be willing to part with a few more for the cost of shipping. I'd prefer to wait until they hit 3I, though.

I have no idea. I should ask a guy at OSU I know -- he says he has a paper on their life history.

That's very cool! He's been studying them? I wish i had some P. Boreus specimens. Seems people don't know too much about them, and I really enjoyed it's company, very cool little scorp.

No, he hasn't been studying them, but he has access to lots of papers. He's the same guy I mentioned in another thread who got to trek through the jungles of Guyana and collect all sorts of bugs (and have a sloth hug him).

I actually got my P. boreus and one of my immature U. mordax from him, though. He also has some mordax specimens from the H. J. Andrews forest that DWARF the ones I've seen between here and Mary's Peak. According to >Google Maps<, that's not too far from where you live. (The weird part is, the points on that map aren't too far from where I found a few specimens that weren't all that large.)
