So what do you do when you lose a couple scorps? Get more of course!

So over the last week (and mostly the last two days at Pomona) I have added:
Hadrurus Spadix
Hadrurus Arizonensis Pallidus (gravid)
Pandinus Impertor (gravid, and also phyiscally much larger than my other emp ~6.5-7" compared to 4.5-5")
Heterometrus Laoticus (male and female, for breeding purposes)
Androctonus Amoreuxi

So this brings my total to 34.

The first picture is really blurry, but I loved the pose she was in and I think the picture is actually kinda cool looking out of focus and all.

Hadrurus Spadix


Pandinus Imperator


Hadrurus Arizonensis Pallidus


Heterometrus Laoticus


Androctonus Amoreuxi (I am a little concerned over that back leg that has the black area, but I figure there is not much I can do about it)

I did put the male and female H. Laoticus in a "breeder box" sized critter keeper (similar size in area to 10 gal tank) with a divider in the middle to keep them seperate until I wanted them to try mating.

This morning I found the male on the female's side of the enclosure co-habitating so maybe he was feeling a bit frisky? :sex:

Dividers do almost nothing to deter scorps. Very Happy

Nice additions, by the way. As for the large emperor, it's possible you snagged a "forest morph" -- the pet trade is almost exclusively savanna morph which is much smaller.

Too be honest I never really measured it. Not too cooperative!

I would guesstimate 5-5.25". It is about .5" bigger than the Pallidus. It is a little big longer than my small Emperor.

It looks as if the foot on the leg 2 legs up from the other one has it as well.

D@nijel, scorpions can't regenerate legs the way tarantulas can.

Scorpion111, A. amoreuxi doesn't have the fat tail characteristic of fattails. I had an adult female that was almost exactly the same way.

Yeah, I've seen them regenerate the tarsal claws before, but that's it. Nothing like what Ts can do.

Then again, scorps are kind of weird when it comes to molting and such -- they're the only group of wingless arthropods that doesn't continue to molt after maturity.
