Hi All,

Still learning, and would like some confirmation that the following is infact Female. I'm 95% certain due to 'her' small metasomas.




Kind Regards,
Scott

Superb Mate. I've just managed to find a small male, which I'm led to believe because of it's super long metasomas. What do you think?





Also picked up a pair of "Pandinus Africanus", Although I'm aware there is no such thing. I believe they are just Pandinus Imperator. Although I got a two males instead of pair, although I'll make a new thread. The pictures are poor from below, as I have nothin clear enough to show. That being said, I'm certain the Hadogenes paucidens is male.

King Regards,
Scott

Yeah first one appears to be female and the second one appears to be male. I would guess from the length of that metasoma, that he isnt done growing.... It should grow a bit more...also, you may want to mix in a little bit of coco fibers into the substrate for them.

Thanks Again, I was planning on doing so. I am just waiting for the Coco Fibre to dry out.

No water dish in there, I read that they acquire moisture from their prey (when they eventually do it) I also read they like to fast for a month at a time when feeding, as if they would in the Wild. I have Slate stacked up with say 1cm gaps, and he is under their with a heatmat below.

The Heatmat is underneith the Slate that is stacked up, Under the Tub. And the Heatmat is on the side for my burrowers (H.Laoticus).

Now im new to this forum and probabley havent taken care of as many scorps. as most of you, but i come from the school of thought that you should never use heat pads and heating from the bottom as this isnt exactly how it happens in nature. Is it wrong than to heat your scorp. enclosure with light heating? My H. troglodytes is heated with a 25 watt reptile bulb.

And you would be right to think that. They naturally burrow to escape heat, so putting a heat pad underneath would be counterintuitive. Use of light heating is fine if it's infrared because they are not bothered by the red lighting. Infrared heat bulbs also work well in producing heat (better than heat mats from my experience) and the red light allows you to see your pets at night. However, any bulb that produces UV should be given more consideration before using because many hobbyists suggest that the UV rays are harmful to the scorp after long exposures.
