I finally got to use a camera again so I decided to take some pix. The dates aren't correct and I'm too lazy to crop them out.

L. quinquestriatus


What instar would you say this little guy is?


B. jacksoni


Unfortunately she wouldn't cooperate in the sunlight:




Bothriurus sp.




Her enclosure:

And a couple of non-scorp pix:

B. albopilosum

Thanks! The python pic was just a random. I didn't even intend on his tongue sticking out like that! Smile

I'll see if I can get some good ones with this cheap Polaroid camera tomorrow. I think I've already disturbed her too much today. Keep in mind that she's been gravid for a long time now and I've no idea when she's going to pop.

What's the best method of getting a shot of the underside? Flash sucks when you're trying to capture a shot in between a clear container.

Seeing them in the sunlight like that, you can really see why they call B. albopilosum "curly-hair" tarantulas. Razz

For getting a shot of your Bothriurus sp. try using a flatbed scanner if you have one. Otherwise, photographing at an angle should prevent the flash from reflecting directly back at the camera.

That usually only SEEMS like a good idea while intoxicated but trust me you never want to do that. Especially when it seems like a good idea. I've been drug away from my open LQ tank a few times...

I've held one after a bit of drinking and I'll never do it again. Pretty sure I got a dry sting from it or something because he flipped himself over with his tail. I was scurred. affraid

I was going to get a handling shot/vid last night, but after feeding he became VERY sting-happy!!! He was stinging everything in sight!

I only handle them when they appear to be calm. He didn't even move when he was on my hand.

Anyway ...

You can never predict when a scorpion's going to be calm or not . . .

Frankly, it's a stupid idea all around.
