I just ordered 5 LQ slings from EVIL_DWELLER on here and they're being shipped out on Monday. I'm stoked, as these will be my first real hots and they're just an awesome species! Now I gotta go out and get some deli containers for all of them.











These may or may not be pictures of the actual scorps themselves but I'm pretty sure that they're of the same brood.

I'm so excited. I can't wait for my babies to arrive! I'll definitely be posting some pics when they do Very Happy

If any of those are yours, I have a feeling as to which ones won't be hungry when they arrive. Razz

Awesome, dude.

If only lq's really looked like that. I had some nice colorations when I was breeding them.

I need to buy more LQs. Only having 3 of em doesn't cut it. Has anyone here held them? I have one that's really calm and I've been dying to try it.






Disclaimer: Do not hold LQs. They are very dangerous and can cause serious health issues if you are stung. I'm an idiot and that's the only reason I've considered this.

Greeeeaaaat! I've just read this in Wikipedia:

However, young children, the old, or infirm (such as those with a heart condition) would be at much greater risk.
That's lovely. I have the heart condition MVP, also known as Mitral Valve Prolapse. Hopefully a sting won't kill me ;x

The way around that, Brandon, is to not get stung. Razz

I've only ever been stung twice, and it wasn't by MS species, because I wouldn't put myself in a position to be stung by them.

(However, I could have easily had an accident when I was packing some A. mauritanicus a few weeks ago -- just use common sense, is all Wink)

Well, I'm already used to my aggressive little emp stinging at everything in site with lightning speed, so I think that I should be good to go lol. I also have 11" tweezers, so I'm good if I need to do any maintenance in the enclosures Smile

I tried using 11" tweezers to pack A. mauritanicus -- did you know they can use the muscles in their metasoma to launch themselves like a tiny venomous projectile??

Haha. Holy crap! I didn't know that! I'd probably laugh up until the point that I got stung Razz

I was more like: Shocked

Then I was relieved that the delis I was shipping them in were within a larger tank, so they couldn't launch themselves very far.

I have a feeling that I'm going to go to bed around when the sun comes up as usual, and then I'll wake up when my scorps get here (probably around 5-6 hours of sleeping), and I'll be half-awake when I unpack them. That wouldn't be good. I'll just look at the through the containers (being cautious of any air holes they could sting through) until I'm fully awake. I don't have a death wish ;x

Anyway... I went out and bought some fine black aquarium sand and got the hookup of deli containers since I know people at this quick shoppe grocery store I used to work at. When I got home I filled all 5 of them with ~1" of the sand, poked 9 holes in the tops with a pencil (hopefully that's enough ventalation --- seems like it), then I broke a clay pot and set ~1" pieces on top of the sand and angled/buried them slightly. The cups are ~4"x4".

Keep in mind they're 2i-3i.

Does everything sound alright?

Btw, when I went to get crix today, the kid didn't even bother counting them properly, so I ended up with a few extras in larges and probably a dozen extra in pinheads Very Happy

Those setups sound pretty good to me. Smile

Probably a good idea to wait until you're fully awake to unpack them -- maybe grab a nap first? A 2I probably wouldn't be a big deal if it tagged you but it might be a big deal if one escapes. Razz

I got my scorps about an hour ago and everything went well! None of them showed any signs of aggression and WOW are they small! About the size of my pinkie nail! They're healthy little guys. They were very well packed. I'm definitely giving EVIL_DWELLER an A++ review for this transaction.

Hopefully I can get clear enough shots of the little tic tacs with the cam later! They're sooooooo tiny lol. I love the way their mesosoma is shaped. Way too cool Smile

Somehow the sand is blocking the entrance/exit points under the pieces of clay pot and they're inside... is that alright or can't they get out? I was thinking of propping it up slightly with some pieces of cork board.
