Subject: 1.1.1Hadrurus arizonesis(the unknown is a sub-adult)
1.1.0Hadrurus arizonesis pallidus

Tank size: Pending..(don't have dimensions just yet but I'd say a square tank of about 3-4 feet wide and 2 feet tall.

Substrate: False bottom setup in 3/4 of the tank. The last 1/4 is divided at the bottom and has only dry substrate. Playground Sand used in this experiment and about 7 inches of sand used. Water-feeding tube inserted to have a humid gradient.

Experiment:
Started October 25, 2007 (current date is February 12 2008): No losses so far. The day I put all scorpions in the same enclosure I had some initial fighting but nothing major. After a few hours the male pallidus attempted mating with the female pallidus and was rejected. 3 hours after that the male pallidus again tried to mate with the female pallidus and again was rejected. Several hours later the male pallius attempted to mate with the arizonensis and mating started but was unsuccesful. Initial heat was 85F. I lowered the temp to room temp a week later and noticed attempted matings again. This time male arizonensis with female pallidus and male pallidus with female arizonensis. Unable to see if mating was succesful or not. They are being fed randomly and last feeding was February 1 2008. No signs of mating again but they are tolerating each other even stacking up as emperors do. I plan to turn up the heat back to 85F in late march. Sub adult burrowed a an inch into substrate might be molting soon.


I WILL WRITE MORE AS MY EXPERIMENT PROGRESSES.

I don't think there as aggresive towards each other as peeople claim thats why I'm trying to get more. Also I'm trying to BREED THEM which is why i need the deep substrate with the humidity gradient.

Breeding . . . I should probably put my female in a deeper container (I heard she was gravid and I want her to have the best chance). She tried making a burrow and it collapsed because the ceiling was too thin. Those packed-sand tanks are HEAVY, though.

Good luck on your endeavors, Eddy! I'm eager to see how it all turns out.

One person successfully raised up two or three out of an entire brood a couple of years ago -- the trick seemed to be leaving them in mom's enclosure so they have the established humidity gradient (he took mom out), but he lost a lot to cannibalism.

spray the hides lightly with water. Underneath of course. But make sure you leave some dry hides as well.

YES!!!!, the thing is that in te wild they are found under rocks were it's much more humid. This way you give them options between a dry hide and a moist one. But only use a little bit of water.

all alive and well even more active since the temp has gone up. I did accidentally injure one myself(my hand is numb) by accidentally droping a part of the hide on it's tail. Should turn out fine though.
