My Buddy is having a tough time with his G/F and he asked ifI wanted it. Im not to keen on Spiders oddly enough as that sounds but as soon as i seen her i liked her. so now i have one more thats added to my little zoo, Lol.

I just looked at the care sheet on AB about them,

is it ok if i keep her on dried eco earth?

Yeah, that's fine. We keep ours on dry coco fiber.

there cool. alot of folk with larger collections say they are the most boring of the boring... well I've got one with quite a temper since I removed the sac, so feeding time and tank maintanince is fun. plus they develop favoured spots for dumping food and stuff... they are cooler than peole give them credit for.

I bought our Stigg one for his birthday 2 years ago... now were swamped with 8 legged friends.

And I agree the G.Rosea is very much under rated. they are like the emps of the scorpion hobby. usually the first one you keep then move on. you forget their good points and how much you loved keeping them.

The rosea is the only one we handle (when necessary) and she is so laid back. She has just shed and is now full adult... and soooo metallic pink on the carapace she looks incredible.

She's a beauty!

Do you plan on ever handling her?

I had mine for over a month without handling him (which isn't like me!). I'm now considering renaming him b/c I named him Satan to begin with, and it turns out he's a pretty nice guy! Razz

Did you get her as a juvenile? 'Cause these things take forever to mature; I've heard some keepers say that any mature female is at least 10 years old. (Seeing how much my sling hasn't grown in the year I've had it, I'm not surprised by that figure.)

Our rosea always looks metallic after a shed, and gradually dulls until they are about to shed again.

Stiggs dad bought the RCF as well.

RCF's dont have the same sort of pink as normal ones, i was studying them at newark and decided that the RCF was less coulorful than normals. mine still isnt as pink as that one but there is some there.

we have two. One is brown and the other pink.
"brown" is very laid back but does sometimes flick hair. Pinky doesnt like being handled at all. when held for tank cleaning *he can be very messy* he holds as many legs up as possible so as to not be touching you.
he is currently sitting on a web on the floor he has made...we presume male..not adult yet...nearly!
