i really like the Bothirus species. what conditions are you keeping them in? They look rather plump, and chance one is gravid?

I currently keep mine on a mix of jungle mix, coco fiber, and a little bit of sand. I'm not sure if it's the best mixture to use, but I couldn't find any info on them ...

Tabor, I think for most Bothriurids you keep them dry, and quite cool (late 60's, early 70's). a member on here had some urophonius granulatus and they died because them temp rose above that. they seem to be quite sensitive to heat and humidity.

Sweet collection, Kuma. Very Happy

Call me old-fashioned, but for some reason your emps seem the coolest to me right now. Although, that H. madraspatensis is pretty awesome too.

I keep mine on the same stuff as bjaeger. I also thought that one of mine may be gravid but all the expert eyes on here think otherwise, so maybe not. Sad

I agree with what scorpion111 says about heat and humidity as i lost all my other Bothriurids Sad

Kuma, are you sure that's is a spinifer you got there, cos the pic shows a black telson and the carapace looks a little bit different. I'm no expert but I have a colony of H. spinifers and they look a little different from yours....

well like I said, I don't claim to be an expert but H. spinifers usually have a brownish red telson when mature. This telson is often creamy white in in young or sub-adults....

If your's is black (unless is a result of the camera), then you might have petersi, or laoticus. In your case its more likely to be pertersi as laoticus tend to have more bulbouse chela. Or in affect that its been a while since I've looked at an adult longimanus.

I could be wrong, forgive me if I am

I second Alex's opinion that its not a spinifer
Definitely look like Laoticus or Petersi, judging from the telson color and lack of granuation of the chela
This is how a Laoticus carapace's granuation pattern looks like (smooth with no granuation)

And this is spinifer


Hope it helps u to ID it

scorpion111
I just google Heterometrus Laoticus carapace picture and it linked me to a thread in arachnoboard

Kuma
Lol, sometime i suspect if my spinifer is really spinifer o not :p
One of the best way to look at the granuation pattern is using blacklight
They are very obvious under it =p
