Hi guys..

i am thinking thru this for soemtime and i tot i ask the expert here for cinfirmation and views Smile

is it advisable to house the following :

a) 6 x 3i Androctonus Mauritanicus in a group till they reach adult hood? in a single setup.
b) 3 x 3i Leiurus Quinquestriatus in a group till they reach adult hood? in a single setup.
c) 6 x 3i Androctonus Australis Hector(Tunisia) in a group till they reach adult hood? in a single setup.
d) 4 x 5i Hottentotta Hottentotta in a group till they reach adult hood? in a single setup.
e) 4 x 5i Parabuthus Transvaalicus in a group till they reach adult hood? in a single setup.
f) 3 x Buthus Occitanus in a group till they reach adult hood? in a single setup.


taking into consideration that hides , food and water were provided . do u guys think it will work out??
reasons for this is because i am thinking of letting get used to each other and promote breeding when the time comes on their own.... currently they are all housed singlely ...

thanks

The only scorpions I would recommend housing together before adulthood are Pandinus spp. and Heterometrus spp.

Anything else I wouldn't trust them at molting time (or any time, with some species).

I have never heard any of the sp above was successfully being kept together
Mostly end up with cannibalism when one molted, take H.Hottentotta as example...
Buthidae never do well together before they reach adulthood, correct me if im wrong

Plus, if im not mistaken, i read in Arachnoboard that the chance of successfully breeding them is higher if u separated them before putting them together to breed

To the best of my knowledge, all Hottentotta spp. are communal as adults.

Brian S. keeps his adult Androctonus spp. together.

IRCC, Eddy has kept L. quinquestriatus together.

I can't say on Buthus spp. or Parabuthus spp..

The only scorpions that I know of for sure that are cannibalistic as adults are in families Vaejovidae and Ischnuridae
